After I sold most of the new troughs this spring, I planted up five that I had left. This one is a short cylinder with a mugo pine, sempervivum and a phlox. I stole the rocks from work.
The middle trough is an Oslo trough, with a couple dwarf conifers, an iceplant, and a veronica.
This is a Helsinki trough with a dwarf arborvitae, a white saxifrage, a dianthus and a couple other things. That little round trough holds an erodium, which is tender here. I bring it inside for a couple months in the winter.
Another Helsinki, this time with a geranium, a sedum, another dianthus, an iris, rosemary, etc. That's a dwarf quince behind it.
Can't ever have enough troughs...
