Advice on a single container please
Hi All, We have a south facing terraced house with a concreted over front garden that is about 4x2m. My cunning plan was to make this a low maintenance area using 3 pale terracotta containers in different sizes. The little one has that black strappy nigera grass, the middle one has some tufty blue grass in it, about 10 inches high, and both are thriving. Four years later they still look very modern, cool and minimal, if I may say so... But then we come to pot no 3. It is about 18 inches across, and I have twice gone for interestingly coloured phormiums that were supposed to be 2x2 feet and fully hardy. Pah! Both died off over winter, within 2 years of planting. Do you have any suggestions for a single plant I could use? Ideally it would have a final height of 2x2 and have interesting year round foliage that would coordinate in a contrasty way with the other black and silvery grasses in the other tubs. Thank you!
