This incredibly cheerful , textural and diverse deck top planter box belongs to the treasurer of the Bromeliad Society of San Francisco, Harold Charns and his gracious wife Rose.
Last year The Charns opened their home and garden to the members of the Bromeliad and Cactus & Succulent Clubs as part of the annual S.F. Bromeliad Garden Tour.
Never have I seen such a fantastic textural tapestry of diverse plants in one large planter box.
Bromeliads commingle with succulents and herbs, orchids and perennials.
A simply beautiful succulent pot
A small water garden also residing on the deck
Don’t you love the coloration ?
