Shades of green
Thomas J. Story

Lime green container pot

Soft textures and bright chartreuse tones light up bronze-colored 17-inch-wide containers.

The plants:

Restio multiflorus: A wispy, grasslike plant that grows 3 to 4 feet tall or more, it develops brown seed heads that hang on through winter.

Libertia peregrinans: Stiff, narrow leaves have warm tones of olive and orange; plants reach 2 feet tall.

Euphorbia amygdaloides robbiae: This spreading foot-tall plant has rounded grass green leaves.

Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold': Feathery green-gold foliage glows in soft autumn light. Plants reach 1½ feet tall.
