5. NO FUSS Plants BY HOME STORIES A TO Z
It’s okay to let the plants take a back seat, and allow the furniture to shine! Green is always a beautiful color on the porch, and this plant adds beauty without being fussy. This is a palm variety that works best on a shaded porch or patio, and stored inside during chilly months.
6. Whitewashed Terracotta Planters BY TIDBITS
Cami from Tidbits is known for her amazing photography of flowers, and her porch is no exception! If you crave a neutral color palette, try plants and flowers within the same color family and whitewash your terracotta pots. You can find Cami’s whitewashed clay pots in her post as well!
7. CLASSIC FERNS BY ON SUTTON PLACE
Ann from On Sutton Place always knows how to make a porch beautiful! Ferns are always a classic porch staple, and she shares some simple tips on how to care for them.
8. FLOWERING TOPIARY BY THISTLEWOOD FARMS
Try something unique! A flowering topiary can be more difficult to find, but I’ve seen them at local nurseries and farmer’s markets. These plants do not grow in this fashion unless trained and pruned to do so. Usually there is very little maintenance to be done except supporting the plant once purchased and trimming to maintain shape. Karianne mixes her display with formal and informal pieces, and her porch is always gorgeous!
9. FAUX IS YOUR FRIEND BY LOLLY JANE
There is no shame in the faux game! If you have a self-proclaimed brown thumb, faux arrangements may be the best solution for you. It’s okay because I promise you, we’ve all been there before. 🙂 You can find information about this porch in their post–including info on that adorable sign!
