Take a look at the Guardian Plant container that I entered into the Kathy Pufahl mixed planter competition at the Cornell Floriculture Field Days. The first place medal is in the Home Gardener class. The plants in the container include barley for an aphid banker plant, marigolds for thrips control, Garten Mister fuschia for whitefly control, lantana for whitefly control, and black pearl ornamental pepper for thrips control.
