Eighteen concrete pots now line Crape Myrtle Allee at Moore Farms Botanical Garden, soon to be filled with a dazzling display of plants.
Maintenance crews installed them in late January, intermittent between the flanking rows of mature crape myrtles. Each pot weighs 800 pounds and is 42 inches tall and 18 inches in diameter.
“In Crape Myrtle Allee, the boxwood hedges are very visible but very simple in design,” said MFBG Senior Horticulturist Brendan Huggins. “These pots are an interesting addition to the garden. We have the ability to change out plantings with the season for a more picturesque setting.”
