ideas for fall/winter plants in window boxes
Help! I know I'm going to use the old stand-bys -- pansies, kale, cabbages, maybe some snaps. I've got a pretty ivy in each box that is cream and pink with some dark green on the leaves, can't remember the variety.
The scrolled iron boxes are large and they are far enough away from the street that I need plants that will grow 18" - 24" tall and have some major impact with the color. Some boxes are in sun, some in part shade. House is taupe and European. I've got 12 boxes.
Adding a few perennials or small evergreen shrubs in plum or wine color could be okay, but they would need to stay 12"- 18" wide and 18"-24" tall, so that I have room for the seasonal annuals.
Is there anything annual and showy for late fall/winter/early spring that I'm missing? Anything new out there?
