A Caddy Full of Foliage

There's something serene about decorating with plants that are all about the foliage and not the flower. When you have attractive foliage there's no need to fuss or deadhead all season. Dusty Miller is an excellent example. Though Dusty Miller (Senecio Cineraria) is supposed to be an "accent plant", I think she looks outstanding just by herself packed into our Galvanized Tin Caddy. The soft greyish-green foliage, which is very much like Lamb's Ear, has a calming quality, and it coordinates perfectly with the galvanized tin.
