Plants For A Small Container

Aug 15, 2016 | Projects/Crafts

Small, Sweet and Not Much Root Room

There are times when we not only need a small plant for an equally tiny container, but when we’d like to have a combination of foliage colors and textures in a restricted space. That means finding attractive plants that won’t grow very large and don’t mind drying out between soakings. When a container is small, there isn’t much soil and so it’s likely to dry up quickly.

This year I found a perfect combination by using Dorotheanthus bellidiformis ‘Mesbicla’ aka Mezoo Trailing Red, Pilea microphylla ‘Variegata’ and an Echeveria ‘Black Prince.’

This was almost an accidental combination. I chose the Dorotheanthus and Pilea because they were being sold in tiny pots at Hyannis Country Garden. I knew that the container I was putting them in was very, very small and has no drainage holes, so I wanted succulents that could stand going dry and I needed small root systems to start with. Fairy Garden Plants to the rescue! Note that the 'Black Prince' isn't very dark in this location because it's not in very much sun. This container only gets a couple of hours of direct sun in this location.

I love how the Mezoo Trailing Red blooms and cascades, without being overwhelming.

The solidity of the Echeveria contrasts nicely with the airy quality of the Pilea.
