Think beyond the blooms when you plant a container garden. Cactus pots come in colors that range from green to gray to near-blue and they come in lots of interesting shapes. Better still, they’re easy to grow and need little care. Once you've gathered your materials, you can create a cactus container garden in about an hour.
Uses for a cactus
A cactus can be used in many ways, such as:
• A feature plant in a hot, sunny, dry spot.
• A bold statement plant, using its form to architectural advantage.
• In a rockery.
• In garden areas where regular maintenance may be difficult.
