Do plants sleep? No, they are busy at night.

The Monstera plant on C.L.’s front porch (on the left by the chair) is an example of a plant that adds drama outside, and becomes a sculptural houseplant in the winter.

The crotons and ferns in this planter are typical houseplants that can be used outdoors in lush displays over the summer. Here they are combined with begonias, coleus and other annuals in a lovely arrangement in part-shade.
