urn shaped planter, elephant ears
Hi, it's been a long time since I came here. I am re-posting a question I put on the container garden forum yesterday, but now I think I should have come right back here. Thanks for any advice:
I have a 20" tall urn shaped planter that is 13" in idameter at its widest part but only has an opening 8" in diameter.
I know that it will make a very handsome addition to my patio, but I don't know how to get there!
I wondered if elephant ears would do well - I have all varieties of sun and shade, and 2 elephant ear bulbs (no idea what kind).
Would they be too large for the opening?
Should I leave the urn with no hole at the bottom (I think elephant ears like very wet places?) or drill a hole for drainage?
I just realized this post is actually 2 questions:
1. what to put in the urn and whether to add a hole
2. what size container to put the EEs in and what other plants would look good with them in the same pot
Thanks for any help.
