Container Flower Gardening Ideas: Artemisia, Scented Geranium, Licorice Plant
This is a very conservative display for people who are not into riotous color in their container displays.
Starting with Artemisia, you may have to improvise a little, as there are dozens of varieties of Artemisia. Almost all of them are suitable in this display, as they vary mainly in shape and size rather than tone or color scheme.
Scented Geraniums come in all types of color. You may not be able to find the brilliant reds in the example shown. The closest we could find was this Scented Geranium Chocolate variety, which will give a dark brown look.
The silvery green soft look is completed by Velvet Lamb's Ear. There are varieties of Lamb's Ear which flower: you want to avoid those, and go for the type which remains a plain ground cover type plant.
