The Impateins and Petunias were grown from seed, Geraniums in the wagon grown from cuttings but originally grown from seed.

Very nice containers!
What is the tall plant you have with the double petunias? I really like the effect.

Thanks linda and Northpine.

The plant in the center of the petunia pot is Calla Lily. I often plant Callas in the center of pots.

Northpine, yes the Calla foliage is very attractive even when not in bloom. Only the pink callas have green foliage, all the others are speckled. I have white, pink, yellow , red and mauve Callas.


Linda, they had a fundraiser dinner at our Grandson's school , then there was a "Silent Auction" and of course I just bid until I got the Bicycle,LOL
After all it was a fundraiser , I paid $50.00
