Playful Pup Patterned Green Wall

Inspired by the pair of miniature doxies that frequently visit our office with their human (LiveWall owner Dave MacKenzie), this playful planting uses a combination of perennial and annual plants patterned to form a “weiner dog.”

The green wall backdrop is Sedum takesimense ‘Gold Carpet’ and the dog’s body is formed with a purple-leaved ornamental sweet potato vine (Ipomoea batatas).  The collar and eye are planted with pink-flowering New Guinea Impatiens (Impatiens hawkeri), and the tongue is a bright red selection of coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides).
