thanks for your 11/25 TNT article
I thank you and my hardy fuchsias thank you for your article saving the fuchsias from an early snipping. Also thanks for the head up on fall planting of hardy annuals.
My question is what color plants will survive in my hanging pots and pots on the ground.

Well you are welcome for the previous advice and I am happy to help with plants that will survive in pots over the winter. First, I assume you made a type and you meant what kind of plant not what color of plant will survive the winter in the Pacific Northwest. If so, you should fill your hanging pots and planters on the ground with hardy perennials that are also evergreen. That would include Euphorbia, sedum Angelina, heucheras, dwarf heathers, winter pansies, small leaf ivy plants, hellebores and Gaultheria. One tip is to note what is growing outdoors in containers in front of fine hotels and restaurants in you area. These have been professionally planted so you can take a photo and bring with you to the nursey when you go shopping. A splash of white from hardy cyclamen or hellebore blooms always stands out well on dark winter days. Keep growing, Marianne Binetti
