i am drowning!

crappy planter on main

the benches that have been added to main street recently are a nice touch. some of the other recent streetscape additions have been misfires. many of the planters look like this one, or worse — empty, dead or dying plants, and consistently overwatered. i seem to recall there are some health risks with having lots of pools of standing water around.


are you sure it's water?

certainly not pure spring water, but mostly water, yes.

It appears to be a type of New Zealand flax which requires moderate water. The soil in the container should be fairly dry before watering again. It's not drought-resistant, but it certainly does not require daily watering.
