Ms. Santa was busy too

Post  JimLewis on Wed Dec 29, 2010 7:40 pm

Ms. Santa brought me a small, bright red, Japanese pot.

What goes in it? Something with white flowers? Crape myrtle? Azalea? Flowering Quince? Something with no flowers but nice fall color? Trident maple? Crape myrtle, thus killing 2 birds with one stone?

How about putting a Forsythia or Jasmine in it. Imagine the bright yellow flowers with the red glaze - stunning!
I have two exposed-root Forsythias that I have been growing for a few years. I was looking at round red shallow pots.....
I'm sure you'll find something nice.

Hmm. Never have grown a Forsythia. It's certainly worth a thought. Many thanx.

Any other suggestions?

Almost all the Pyracantha around here are a vibrant orange -- not a good match for an almost pure red in the pot.

Cotoneaster may well be OK. I'd have to get something larger than the miniature version I grow in my mame pots.

Another good thought.
