Beautiful. This look would be great with Cannas, Persian Shield, Sedum "Carl" or Coleus in the middle ("Thriller"), begonias or impatients around the base ("Filler"), and creeping Jenny or Silver Pony Foot hanging down ("Spiller").
Big leaves-do you not love them? This severely contemporary v-shaped limestone planter benefits from a planting of the paddle-leaved tropical plant dieffenbachia. The pale yellow green leaves can dramatically lighten a very shady spot. The yellow variegated ivy once established, I kept trimmed to the inside edge of the stone, as the container itself makes such a strong statement.
