Planting an urn, such as the concrete urns used for our family wedding, isn’t difficult. Keep in mind you’ll want some heighth in the center of the urn and then select shorter plant materials for the edge. Trailing plants are especially effective. We used columbine for the center, maindenhair fern, begonia and violas were planted around the outside edges of the urn. The white roses, seen in the picture, were cut and inserted into florist vials and placed where needed to complete the look of the arrangement. The nice thing is that with a little attention these can last an entire season, providing your deck, patio or entry a beautiful spot of color.
