Create visual impact by potscaping

A galvanized steel water trough purchased from the local Co-op store is home to two large pots of taro (Colocasia esculenta ‘Pink China’) planted in heavy garden soil and sub­merged in the water-filled trough. Six pots of marsh bent grass (Agrostis stolonifera var. palustris) were sunk in the trough as well to provide a trailing green groundcover
and soften the edges of the container.

The trough is flanked by two large urns of ‘Red Star’ cordyline (Cordyline australis ‘Red Star’)
