Hi irobo8. The plants are: Left side (orange/peach flowers) it's a trailing begonia. The grass like foliage behind is Liriope (Variegated). The burgandy foliage is a Coleus. Behind the coleus is a Hebe 'Patty's Purple' (Purple flowers, perennial shrub) . Beside the Hebe is Fuschia gartenmeister (Coral colour flowers). The green trailing foliage is a green ipomea. The few bits of silver foliage is Helichrysum. The Hebe likes a bit more sun than the other plants but it seems to do fine in part sun conditions. 3 - 4 hours of sun (morning sun) would be fine. I also fertilize once a week with 15-30-15 (Miracle Grow or any other brand with those numbers). This container is quite large. It measures about 32" across the top and it's about 3' high. I hope this helps!

Hi jilly1,
Yes it will grow for you in the interior. I would make sure that the container gets morning light only. Quite a few coleus like sun but they need to be well watered when in sunny conditions. Hebe's are fine with sun all day long but they probably won't make it over your winters. I would treat them as an annual. I hope this helps!

Christine Tusher added this to 9 Tips for Creating an Artful Container Garden
If you do choose to use multiple plants in one container, Partridge advises to pack them in. “As long as you have a good-sized container — 22 to 36 inches — and fertilize weekly, they will be happy,” she says.And while you should definitely consider the three components of a container plant grouping (thriller, filler and spiller), you also shouldn’t be afraid to veer from an exact formula. “You might just have one large plant in the container with trailing spiller plants,” says Partridge.The formula for grouping plants in a pot

The plants are: Left side (orange/peach flowers) it's a trailing begonia. The grass like foliage behind is Liriope (Variegated). The burgandy foliage is a Coleus. Behind the coleus is a Hebe 'Patty's Purple' (Purple flowers, perennial shrub) . Beside the Hebe is Fuschia gartenmeister (Coral colour flowers). The green trailing foliage is a green ipomea. The few bits of silver foliage is Helichrysum. The Hebe likes a bit more sun than the other plants but it seems to do fine in part sun conditions. 3 - 4 hours of sun (morning sun) would be fine. I also fertilize once a week with 15-30-15 (Miracle Grow or any other brand with those numbers). This container is quite large. It measures about 32" across the top and it's about 3' high
