Hello everyone...not sure if this is the best place for this post but it seems like it might be.
I'm looking to put two large urns on my front porch with some sort of perennials in them. I'm not the best gardener and would like something VERY easy to take care of perhaps like an ornamental grass or flowers that need little effort. I have some fiddlehead ferns right off the front of the porch that could be transplanted - if they would survive in pots.
This porch gets afternoon/evening sun and is on the north/west corner of the house.
Any suggestions are appreciated!

Well I'm really not sure what to tell you to put in the pots, only because you would have to take them in or at least get them out of the weather for the winter. Now an annual, such as the trailing petunia would be nice with maybe one of those spike plants. But a perinnial in a pot should be buried in the ground for winter. If I were you I would look at books go to garden centers in your area and see what they tell you will work in your area in shade/sun. with water requirements of..... I find this really hard to answer this question. Good luck. Post a picture when you do get it together. I'd love to see what you choose. Tammy
