Front Porch Pizzazz!

Using planters to update a bungalow porch


Last Spring I purchased two large, heavy ceramic planters on sale for $24 each at IKEA. I love the color and shape. Sadly, they have sat empy all summer.

I recently found two pretty red, spikey plants reasonably priced at the garden center. They weren’t named, and I don’t know what type of plants they are, but they work well with the planters. The red of the plants really stands out next to our green exterior.

    It’s a Dracaena, also a houseplant. I have one outside my front door, too.

    The one picture shows your house colors really well. You did a good job of choosing them.
