Using houseplants in the outdoor garden

For the past few days, I’ve been trying to decide where to put new plants that I received courtesy of Costa Farms. The plants are part of Costa Farms’ O2 for You series of houseplants, but since we have at least two months of warm weather left here in central Illinois, I wanted to keep them in the outdoor garden for as long as possible.

This morning, it occurred to me that the perfect place might be to place the houseplants — pots and all — into some small bare spots in my patio garden.

The patio garden is primarily designed in deeper greens and burgundy tones, so the brighter green and yellow foliage of the Dieffenbachia and Dracaena and the white flowers of the Spathiphyllum really provide some bright spots amongst the darker colors.
