This handmade terracotta blend planter, has an aged finish and will develop a weathered appearance if left outdoors. It will lend a classic sophistication to any garden. We've had so much fun planting these very unique planters and they've become a huge conversation piece in our garden. So many different plants can be used and basically the "sky is the limit!" The head measures 8" X 10" X 17" tall and the shipping weight is approximately 25lbs. Avoid freezing temperatures. Take them inside for winter.
