Last year I tested out a fantastic annual plant named the Black Velvet Petunia from Simply Beautiful – the world’s only black petunia!! NO KIDDING! That much excitement in a plant can only lead to one thing – a design idea that features chains and whips. Okay, maybe not all that, but certainly leather and lace!
With this amazing new black flower wowing spring nurseries, it is a perfect opportunity to build the container design union of rock-star proportions.
Have Breathless White Euphorbia shack up with Black Velvet Petunia in your container garden for a “Leather and Lace” container garden combo that will rock the neighbor’s socks off. It might just inspire your favorite Harley rider to don the leathers and give you a ride around town.
Black Velvet Petunia is a fantastic plant. Containers filled with leather-black mounded flowers which have a tidy habit and love the full sun are perfect on a patio.
Breathless White Euphorbia does well in part-shade and sun, with dark green leaves are flushed with red. Small, lacy-white bracts flushed with pink cover the plant all season.
Leather and Lace heaven. Try something new in your garden and build your very own “Leather and Lace” Container Garden this season!
