Colorful Outdoor Pots For The Holiday Season

Are your potted plants losing their color and life as mine are? 

I was looking for inspiration down in McKinney Texas the other day and the plants outside the shop My Favorite Room drew my attention.

Potted Plants Outside My Favorite Room

The shop owner always manages to pick just the right time to add a few new seasonal plants to the year-round boxwoods and ivy in front of her shop.

Here the purple and green cabbages and the yellow mums are growing in fuller just as the peppers are starting to fade away...

No matter how I try, our front entry doesn't have the northern exposure that seems to provide the perfect light and temperature to keep potted plants as happy as these plants seem to be no matter the season.

Yet, despite past failures *sigh* I plan to try once again to perk up our outside pots this season. 

Please let me know if you have a favorite outdoor plant that will add some color to outdoor pots in an east side exposure and thrive for the holiday season.

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Those cabbages are so beautiful...the color is that purple! I don't get enough this time of year for mums on the front of the house. During the summer, we get plenty and the plants do wonderfully out there...well, when it isn't 1200 degrees! Love and hugs!

  2. I love the purple and green cabbages!

  3. What a great idea. I love these decorative cabbages and I never know just what to do with them...never thought of including them in pots.

    Thank you!

  4. Wish I could keep potted plants looking good. By early fall everything looks like crap and needs to be thrown out. Even the mums I bought look bad...of course they have been through two hurricanes. :) Just commented on your last post. Almost missed it and your cute daughter.

  5. Oh my, am I ever the wrong person to ask for potted plant advice! When all I had to tend was indoor plants, I did quite well with them. But now I can't keep a potted plant alive indoors or out!

  6. Your potted plants look lovely!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  7. I don't have much success with outdoor potted plants. Anything that doesn't die is my favorite! :D
