When you want antique planters, our 18" Doral square antique planters, here in caviar black, are one container plant choice you'll want to consider. Or choose old bronze, weathered terracotta or weathered greystone, all marbled. With their 18" depth, they're a substantial choice to complement or create a traditional but exciting silhouette like the antique planters that have graced fine homes for centuries. For a home that recalls or replicates lines and design from historic Europe or an earlier America, Doral is an excellent choice among antique planters. It provides many years of elegance in lightweight resin that appears to be either heavy ceramic or metal, fully drilled for reliable drainage and rimmed with a design that gives it exceptional stability. Just enough detailing makes it distinctive, but never overdone.
If wind is a factor in your landscape, the Doral planter's square footprint is an asset. Urns, especially in resin, may catch the wind with taller plants. Of course you want your container planters to stay put unless you decide to move them!
What might you want to showcase in your Doral 18" square antique planters? Almost anything you like - they are that versatile. If your home has a Mediterranean feel, especially in a warm climate, plants that are perennial only in zones 7 to 10 are a natural accent. You can also consider the huge variety of dwarf plants, including citrus fruits, available today - the square pot adds drama, and is also a great foil for topiaries and their varied designs. Grouping several matching plants or matching groups of plants fits well with the somewhat formal lines favored in past centuries. Flowers and trailers, whether more flowers or vines, are also lovely - go for some height in the center to make these container plants add the most excitement to your plantscape.
If your climate is hot, you may enjoy being outdoors more in the evening - white and light flowers make that especially delightful. A few that are lovely in container gardens include Camellia, Alyssum, Cosmos, Verbena and Cape Fuchsia. Many of these especially thrive in plant zones 8 to 11, making them a bit more unusual than all-zone choices. Impatiens, in white and many other colors, bloom their hearts out in the shade. All are especially nice for an evening seating area.
Antique planters are a special breed. Our Doral 18" square antique planters, here in caviar black, are shaped and colored for perfection in antique settings. Other colors are old bronze, weathered greystone and weathered terracotta, all marbled for additional richness. Blend your color to the background, or make it part of your container plant statement with a contrast. The Doral planter's capacious 18" gives you many planting choices, and will do so for many years. Doral antique planters are guaranteed for a full 10 years against sun damage or weather cracking, so don't hesitate to plant something you want to enjoy for a long time. As you see, a tall narrow plant balances well – so will tall vase-shaped plants, or several plant layers. Grasses make a statement that changes through the seasons, and can be filled in with a huge variety of lower flowers and/or vines creating a pleasing tall column with additional interest. Created in lightweight resin, the Doral square planter looks like metal or clay, is fashioned with a strong rolled rim for stability, and is fully drilled for drainage.
