Container Flower Gardening Ideas: Red Cordyline, Licorice Plants, Soprano Purple Osteospermum
We love this display because it has a great variety of shapes. It's also an understated one, color-wise, for people who don't enjoy busy, contrasting colors.
The tropical-looking spikes are Red Cordyline. If you want a slightly different look, then there are lots of different colors of Cordyline, so don't be afraid to experiment with the tone of your displays.
The pale silver green leaves are Lamb's Ear. Be sure to avoid the flowering varieties if you want to retain the look of the pictured display.
If you're not fixed on the idea of the purple look, then Osteospermum is available in a ton of different colors, including two-tone with a color and white. Try to choose a color which matches your chosen shade of Cordyline to retain the style of the display.
