Dryopteris, epimedium and muehlenbeckia container for shade

Shade-loving pot display

Brighten up a shady corner with this foliage-packed container display.

For this container display, we’ve picked a mix of shade-loving plants with contrasting leaf shapes and colours, which we planted in an etched brass container that will reflect light and enhance the green of the foliage. Don’t forget, if the container you’ve picked doesn’t already have holes for drainage, drill these in yourself. Most plants struggle in waterlogged soils.
