July Container Gardening Recipe 2023

You’re Sure to Fall in Love With This Heartfelt Combo.

That blooming bleeding heart vine was the eye-catching inspiration for this recipe. The white and red flowers lead to the red heart-shaped caladium and the exotica begonias’ electric red foliage. The variegated leaves of the flax lily and ajuga create a bright backdrop for all that drama. Although some of the plants in this recipe are “hot to trot,” this grouping will be happiest with a bit of morning sun, dabbled light, to shady conditions.

  1. Dianella Flax Lily is a classic thriller with thick variegated leaves. Its flirty flower spikes perfectly fit our theme. Full sun to shade makes it an easy care choice.
  2. Caladium Hot 2 Trot is one of Proven Winner’s new sun or shade-loving caladiums! As their name says, they can take the heat. With deep red heart-shaped leaves, they are drought tolerant and deer resistant too!
  3. Bleeding Heart Vine The inspiration for this combo, we are using this gardener’s heartthrob as a trailer. But she will want to climb, so she’ll be spilling and thrilling before you know it!
  4. Ajuga Burgundy Glow is most often used as a ground cover. In our recipe, its spreading nature makes it a perfect spiller.
  5. Begonia Exotica is an exciting rarity from the rain forests of New Guinea. Its large, metallic-looking leaves sport bright-pink variegation that demands attention. This prefers shade and moist soil to thrive and keep its leaves’ rich color.
