1. Ruffled Up A fountain of ‘First Knight’ fountain grass (Pennisetum ‘First Knight’) and a red cabbage anchor this handsome fall container, one of a pair of urns flanking the entrance of an elegant Chicago home. Designer Jennifer Hoxsie of Greenhaven Landscapes says she gravitates toward simplified and symmetrical arrangements like this one to complement formal homes. Layers of cold-hardy, extra-ruffled kales — ‘Red Russian’, ‘Red Chidori’ and ‘Redbor’ — fill the mid-layer with plenty of texture. Although Hoxsie changes container plantings for her client seasonally, the plants used here, save for the fountain grass, could last until the holidays. Water requirement: Moderate; irrigated two to three times a week in fall Light requirement: Full sun
