Colorado Homes & Lifestyles (May 2014)

We’re very excited that Colorado Homes & Lifestyles has published a profile on the Denver Dirty Girls! “When Sheila Schultz relocated from Illinois to Colorado, she was already an expert on the subject of potted plants. But she had little experience working with succulents and cacti, both of which she quickly discovered were ideally suited...

"A Laughable Amount of Plants Crammed and Jammed"

“A Laughable Amount of Plants Crammed and Jammed”

Beautiful foliage and blooms does not equal a high maintenance nightmare. This trio of pots overlooking the Denver skyline is a perfect example of that. These glazed bronze pots are jam packed with gorgeous perennials and annuals made to leave to little work for the homeowner.
