This colourful autumn pot display captures the essence of autumn in a pot. The combination of colourful stems, berries, sedge and deciduous and evergreen foliage feels harmonious, and is interesting enough to hold a space on its own. The simple, squat, terracotta pot anchors the planting nicely, the vertical brushstrokes of the red-stemmed cornus work well alongside the nandina, and the skimmia berries add a splash of bright red colour to complete the look.
The display will look good from day one and will keep going right through the winter. Only the cornus will lose its leaves, but it will still have its lovely colourful stems.
