Goldilocks - One of the best perennial ground cover and trailing plant for containers! Planted it for a ground cover and in big urns. Just let the pots fill and drip with it down the stairs. Striking contrast with black containers, and darker plants!
Goldilocks is a bright, lime green spreading plant that grows to about 36 inches. Here it drapes in dramatic fashion over an Old World-style container with Matrix Blue pansies and Easy Wave blue petunias.- Tilted pot for flowing effect

Three words to live by for a drop dead gorgeous container… thriller, filler and spiller. When designing a container, we always start our challenge by selecting the thriller, which in this case is an Agave desmettiana ‘Variegata’. Once we’ve found the first piece to the puzzle, we seek out the filler element. In this instance we used Plectranthus “Troy’s Gold” and finally we incorporate the spillers, Lysimachia nummularia ‘Goldi’ and ‘Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Purple’, Sweet Potato Vine.
