Enhance Visual Interest by Combining Two Different Plants
We recently redesigned our planter bed. We had the soil amended with a half blend of organic potting mix and the other half a combination of sand and pumice. This will provide better drainage. We also divided and rearranged the plants in efforts to give this area a nice blend between height and width.
The two varieties of plants that share similar markings were added to give us a variability in height and width. The similarities will allow for a visually soothing observation, while their height and width differences will provide better coverage and keep this arrangement a little more interesting.
This bed has been incorporated with Sansevieria Masoniana 'Congo' and Sansevieria 'Jaboa' to satisfy our desire for more coverage in width and height. Sansevieria Masoniana ‘Congo’ grows shorter and wider in comparison to the Sansevieria ‘Jaboa’ which grows a bit more narrow and taller. The tallest Jaboa stalk here is approximately 4’ tall.
This area will grow in to give us an interesting variety in size and form, but will maintain a nice flow due to their shared markings. We look forward to seeing this grow.
