I’m so excited about my white and purple window box flowers! It’s been a rough start to the flower season here in MI. Late snow, freezing temps, then swinging straight on into the 90’s. So a typical spring for us I guess, ha! My flowers were looking a little sad from all the crazy weather. Now that they have had a few weeks to recover (although they still aren’t where I’d like them to be), I thought I would quick share what I planted this year.
Cottage Window Box Flowers
I always love a mix of purple and white with some fun greenery thrown in.
This year, I threw a little bit of everything in there. No plan, just grabbed what I liked at my local nursery! Cherry Valley Greenhouse is my fave for you locals.
I did a mix of Geraniums, Verbena, Lemon Licorice plant, Petunias, Bacopa, Calibrachoa, Petite licorice plant…and the kitchen sink ;)
Oh and my boxwoods are looking a little shaggy and misshapen. I’m letting them fluff up a bit before I trim them.
I love the silvery color of the Petite Licorice plants mixed in with all the white and purple.
I’ll have to do an update post later this summer when everything fills in!
I’m also itching to add window boxes on the cottage next door, but I guess I should wait until the new windows are actually installed first. An update on the guest cottage patio is coming up tomorrow. I know 3 posts in one week, who am I? :)
