High-Style Low-Maintenance Municipal Planters

This colorful container is low-maintenance while providing tons of color and interest to passersby

In Melbourne, Australia municipal planters are filled with color . . . but not from flowers!   These massive street plantings contain a simple combination of majesty palms as “thrillers” combined with bright green sedges, pink-burgundy heuchera, phormium ‘Yellow Wave’, chartreuse sedum, and coprosma ‘Pacific™ Sunset’ with its  glossy variegated foliage.  The varying heights add interest, as does the repeating pattern.

All the plants in this selection are tolerant of both sun and partial shade – and important consideration when planters are located in an area that is shaded part of the day by nearby buildings.

Plants are left in their containers, making it easy for maintenance personnel to swap out any that aren’t performing, and allowing for ongoing changes throughout the season.

These high-style, low-maintenance planters add warmth and elegance and help to soften the edges of the nearby structures.
