"One of the laciest and most intricate with neat dark-green fronds that show off the rust brown bristles and often with a pale-silky tight curl at the ends of each frond"

Non poisonous plants for pots please Hi I wonder if you can help. I have a Nursery school and am looking for some plants I can plant in pots, that are in a partly sunny, partly shady spot. They have to be plants that aren't poisonous and provide interest over as much of the year as possible. I really like the plants in you ready made border section on the website site, particularly shady pink, sunny pink and keep it cool. Could you please tell me if any of these plants are suitable for my needs? Many Thanks Joanne

Hello Joanne, I think your best option would be to opt for mainly evergreen shrubs as these will provide year-round interest. You can then infill with some of the more colourful perennials. As long as the spot does not get too much shade, then here are some of your best options.
