How're you gonna keep those philo? rhododendron? from getting huge in those containers?

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

One is split leaf philodendron, the other is Elephant Ears. And I want them to get huge quick.....thus the stuffed pots.....we are having a wedding in the backyard next month and can use all the flowers/plants we can find. I'll worry later if they get overgrown......ha ha! Right now I want the porch to look tropical for the wedding. :-))

Morganc, The pots are beautiful. But I'm looking past them through the railing and the yard looks like it's equally lovely. Could you post photos of your whole garden?

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

Thank you kneff......here is our streambed that I just planted with flowers. Hopefully they will fill in a bit by next month.

Your place is beautiful... In the second pot is that a white caladium in the back? The pots are gorgeous already !!

Beautiful!

jasminesmom - YES.......I love Caladiums and really wish they would come back year after year. But we do get freezes.....and they croak! :-(

SE Houston (Hobby), TX(Zone 9a)

Did you know you can dig them up before the freeze, store and save them for next year?

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

I know......but I'm a lazy gardener and that sounds like WAY too much trouble. I like easy.

Cannas live through our winters, (so I have lots of them) you'd think Caladiums would too. It's not like the ground freezes or anything. Even Dahlias make it!

Our garage is full of Plumeria and a few others that we store there in the winter, and our greenhouse can't take any more plants due to space considerations. I guess I'm already doing "hard"......I want easy now!

Really lovely--thank you for posting!
