Chicago Succulents


The <a href="https://cactusjungle.com/archives/blog/exit.php?url_id=1845&amp;entry_id=1663" title="http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=125845" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=125845′;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Chicago Daily Herald</a> (never heard of them) says you should plant some pretty succulents together in a mixed pot, and then you’re an artist! Woohoo!<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Plants as Art</span><br /><img width="200" hspace="5" border="2" align="left" src="/blog/uploads/misc/42399.jpg" /> Rita Randolph could probably make a beautiful container with dandelions….<br />
<br />
Gardeners striving to be container artists can learn a lot from her.<br />
<br />
Her multitude of planters range from those featuring mother-in-law’s tongue to edibles, succulents, grasses, vines and monochromatic selections….<br />
<br />
If you never thought of mother-in-law’s tongue as a beauty, you haven’t followed Randolph’s advice:<br />
<br />
&quot;It needs friends. It’s always stuck in the back of a container.&quot;</span><br /></div><br />You know, journalism is very different than blogging. They write these articles, and we leach off them for our blogs. They write about bizarre things like how using sansevieria makes a planter into art, and I post them for you. I guess what I’m trying to say is that they’re sincere and I’m not.<br /><br /><br />
