I've never been big on house plants but I envisioned some type of topiary in this area. So, I bought this small flowering plant, already trimmed to a topiary, called "duranta" at a local nursery. I also added a small fern.
I decided to spray paint the pots, both of which I already had, the same color to give it a more uniform look.
So far, so good. I added some moss and snapped this picture the day after I bought them.
Fast forward a month later and my plants aren't quite so perky. (And, yes, I did water them on a regular basis.)
The fern is still hanging on. . . .
And, I now have this dang water mark on the dresser where they were sitting.
I still haven't given up on the idea of some type of topiary. So, for those of you with thumbs a little greener than my own, I'm asking for your suggestions. Any ideas of a good indoor plant that I could trim into a topiary?
