Shades of Purple Shade Container Garden

Partial Shade Project

Time: 30 Minutes

Purple is such a regal color - and for a shade garden it can't be beat! For this container, we've played with different shades of purple from the light purple in the intricate columbine bloom to the lavender-pink impatiens to rich, dark purple in the leaves of the persian shield. Place this container where it will get morning sun.
