Fall Containers – National Arboretum

The National Arboretum

Fall is a great time to visit the National Arboretum.  The vistas are packed with colorful foliage that happens with the change of season.   Honestly, this place is probably my favorite visitor friendly destination in North American.  You can enjoy the National Arboretum solo, with a group, family, pets, ride a bike or go for a jog.

In my summer container blog I highlighted many containers at the arboretum.  Thought you might like to see how a couple of the containers looked following a hot summer. 

This planting of Sedum and Nasella does not disappoint.  The reflection in the window echoes this planting.

The grassed and millet glowed with the sunrise and waved in the breeze.

Both these plantings are low maintenance and have long seasonal interest.
