Purple Fountain Grass with Wirevine

This fall container garden uses purple fountain grass ('Rubrum," pennisetum setaceum) and creeping wirevine (muehlenbeckia) in a simple arrangement. The plain metal planter works well with the elaborate textures of the grasses and wirevine, giving the container garden a modern look.
