The hourglass figure is not a good look for a container combo. You almost have to see it in person to get the full effect of the tall skinny Zinnia with brown leaves at it's base, sticking up valiantly from the drape of Calibrachoa. Unfortunately, this is in the front garden.
A hapless victim of my trip to Boston. The Cordyline will prevail, the rest is compost.
Easily one of the most dreadful container combinations I have come up with in years...maybe decades.
At least nothing is dead in this one, and the Ipomea is pretty happy. The rest of it has seen better days.
At least the succulents still look good !
