I enjoyed reading your article today! Somehow, I missed it the first time it was published. I, too plant a patriotic container every year. No two years are the same! This year's patriotic themed container is planted with Mirror Blue Delphinium, Royal Custom Mix Gerbera Daisy in Red, Cooler Peppermint Vinca, and Snow Crystals Alyssum. It's planted in a half whiskey barrel planter, and fits nicely against the wall of my front porch. I have attached a picture! I planted this on Memorial Day weekend.
