Pottery Pots Company

We have introduced a new line of light-weight contemporary planters from the Netherlands. Pottery Pots Company was the brain child of two Dutch brothers who began their company in a garage in 2008. Now marking their 10th-year anniversary, Pottery Pots has become a global player in the manufacturing of pottery made from Fiberstone. This material is a combination of fiberglass and stone powder which ensures a durable material that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use at any temperature. Fiberstone comes in natural colors with glossy or matte finishes. Their glossy options include a car-lacquer finish for a highly durable shine. Stop in to see this line of simple and elegant designs that are light weight and low maintenance as well as being a great alternative to glazed pottery.

Plants of the Month

    Asystasia gangetica 'You're So Vein' Ganges Primrose or Veined-Leaf Chinese Violet.

Native to Asia, this is an eye-catching perennial with unique ruffled and puckered green leaves veined in bright white. As it sprawls over the ground, it produces lavender trumpet-shaped flowers which attract butterflies. It thrives in sun or partial shade and can tolerate dry conditions, heat, humidity, salty air, and nutrient-poor soils. 'You're so Vein' is great for mixed containers, planter boxes, or hanging baskets. Available here in 6"and 10" pots and 16" hanging baskets.

 

Dwarf Barbados Cherry or Dwarf Pink Mound

Without coaxing or pampering, dwarf Barbados cherry produces small pink-&-white dainty flowers followed by red edible cherry-like fruit throughout the year. With a very high vitamin C content, it is said that 1 cherry equals the vitamin content of 12 oranges. They can be used in jellies & jams, and they freeze without losing their vitamin potency. 
    Native to West Indies & Central America, this plant is drought tolerant once established. Grows to 2'-4' tall by 2'-3' wide making an excellent hedge or year round accent in full sun to partial shade. Butterflies and bees are attracted to the nectar, & the fruit is a favorite among the birds. We are pleased to offer 3-gallon and 7-gallon dwarf Barbados cherry with buds, blooms, & fruit!
