white brugmansia in a pot

Posted by PDXGreg OR 8 (My Page) on

I'm posting this on the "Brugmansia" "Garden Design" and "Container Gardening" forums as well.

I am putting a large single white brugmansia into a very large pot to give it room to grow as huge as possible. They are know for being heavy feeders, so I will be giving it a lot of fertilizer.

I'm trying to find things to plant with it--annuals, perennials, trailers, or summer bulbs that will work well.

Primarily, they need to:

*look good with the brug's many huge white flowers. White is a hard color for me. What colors work well with it besides blue. (I like interesting, variegated, and colorful foliage as much as I like flowers.)

*be able to take the rich soil I'll be creating in the pot.

I'd appreciate any and all suggestions.

Last year I used Torena under my burgs and they did well.
I chose clown mix.

I think a combination of Blue Scaevola and Silvery Licorice plant would be wonderful with your white Brug.
