As cold weather tightens its grip, this pot is guaranteed to bring a spot of warmth to your patio. 

The fiery tones will make a welcome highlight on the darkest days, and the display will look good for several months. 

The evergreen photinia creates the backbone of the display, while the bronze carex adds texture and movement to the scheme. 

To keep the cheery violas flowering non-stop, simply deadhead them regularly.
