Two patio planters featuring (top) heuchera (commonly called coral bells) 'Frosted Violet' which was planted in the fall, 2005 for winter interest. The plant prospered all winter! The lower pot contains spurge, white viola, Artemisia, and 'Sunspot', another heuchera. Both planters receive partial sun and show how color can be achieved without flowers.
