The red plants in the pond are Bromeliads.

I draw the line at using toilets for planters, but this old claw-foot is a real beauty, especially when combined with the bright yellow wall and more sculptural plants.
Salvaged claw-foot tub. Fish and plants now soak in this vintage bathtub, composing a unique pond garden.
Becky Harris added this to Why Is There a Bathtub in the Backyard?
This vintage claw-foot tub now serves as a planter and a backyard fish pond.

This 'container' holds both bromeliads, and fish! To create a unique pond setting in your space, use a vintage claw-footed tub. The bromeliads sit in pots above the surface of the water, making them appear to grow from the water

Use an old bathtub to create visual interest by transforming it into a unique plantar. Utilize disposable plastic grips that are placed over bottles you buy at the liquor store, by placing them over the open drain of the tub. This will create proper drainage for the tube plantar and help to hydrate other parts of the garden
