Poolside Tropical Container Garden

These tropical-themed containers were placed around a pool to soften the concrete pad surrounding the pool and give focal points throughout.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Moss Rose I love to use moss rose in containers for its ability to take a lot of direct sun and dry conditions. Moss rose is a succulent with small cup-shaped flowers and needle-like foliage. It grows only to about 6 inches tall, so it works great at the edges of containers. Moss rose comes in a wide variety of colors and looks lovely spilling over the sides of a pot, as in this photo. Because it cannot take freezing temps, it’s best to plant after the average last frost.Botanical name: Portulaca grandifloraUSDA zones: N/A; treat as an annualWater requirement: Dry to medium moisture; well-drained soilLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 3 to 9 inches tall and 6 to 12 inches wide
