Wanting to put together planters for my front porch that will last through my zone 6 winter. Is there anything with purple leaves I can use? I plan to use some type of green pine, blue star juniper and yellow sedum, but would like something purple. Nothing comes to mind. Ideas??
Not sure what appeals to you but a dwarf pine always looks nice & the nurseries can recommend something to you. I have a book that has ideas if you can get a hold of it from your local library?

Trimmed topiary is always striking in the winter. Its so harsh around here in the winter anymore that the only purple might be Xmas lights! LOL

I don't know how well they would hold up in your area but what about the winter kale & cabbages? Some of them have some purple on them.
