Just wanted to share this nice group of plants, for those that love the harmony of a limited color palette. These flower boxes are on the 1st floor and provide a nice screen from the street for anyone seated in the parlour of this apartment. And the green is nice, with just a spot of silver on the caladiums: not a blossom in sight, yet a beautiful arrangement of shapes and heights arranged in these simple black windowsill planters...
creeping phlox asparagus fern, and sweet potato vine (and, I think, a stray begonia as well) all are fine in the shade, which is what this north-facing window box gets all day. As much as I love blossoms, I think this is a colorful and vibrant display that will consistently look good all season long.
