What to plant on East facing patio
I have two very large cement planters (2' x 2') on an East facing patio that are pre plumbed for irrigation (no hand watering, yay!) and get about 6 hours of sun a day. I am looking for a lush/willowy type plant to soften up my desert landscape, any thoughts on what plants would grow well here and fit my description? I'd prefer they didn't grow too tall to block views and I already have so much cactus and succulents, trying to avoid anymore.
Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
