Does the Color of the Planter Make a Difference?

What color GreenStalk should I choose?

It’s a question we get asked often! For the most part, it’s just personal preference. There’s just a few things to consider:

5 Tier Stunning Stone GreenStalk Vertical Planter with GreenStalk Mover

Stunning Stone

This is our most popular color – and for good reason! It goes with everything. Brick homes, wood homes, landscape designs, terracotta planters, and more. This is our favorite choice for a neutral look. It also may be a couple of degrees cooler than the darker tones. This exact color was tested by Gardening Products Review in Arizona and got their highest 5 shovel rating. Plus, if the color does fade after the 5 year warranty, it will still look good due to the light color.

5 Tier Beautiful Black GreenStalk Vertical Planter with GreenStalk Mover

Beautiful Black

This is our original color! It’s a classic. We love that this is timeless and that is actually the most durable of all the colors. We find that this color will be the last to fade and gets slightly warmer than the lighter colors. When Benjamin Vidmar contacted us about growing in the northern most greenhouse in the world, we recommended this color for it’s durability and heat retention. Plus, our GreenStalk Movers come in one color, black, so if you want a matching set, go with beautiful black for your GreenStalk Vertical Planter!

5 Tier Chocolate Brown GreenStalk Vertical Planter with GreenStalk Mover

Chocolate Brown

This is a newer color which was introduced in 2017 along with the luscious green. We love this tone for wood, brick and vinyl homes. It’s a natural looking color and really lets the plants pop! We’ve grown purple and white flowers in a 5 Tier GreenStalk Vertical Planter in chocolate brown and loved the results. It may get a little warmer than the stunning stone color, but not enough to harm the plants growing. Potting mix blends into the chocolate brown color so it doesn’t show dirt as easily. If you’re worried about staining or if it’s going in the garden, chocolate brown is a great pick!

4 Tier Luscious Green GreenStalk Vertical Planter

Luscious Green

This is for the color-lovers out there. Our luscious green ensures that the planter blends with the plants – with the exception of the red-toned plants which provide an excellent contrast. Jack’s daughter, Ashley chose this color and it’s been popular ever since it made its debut in fall 2017. Plus, you can’t lose by getting a “green” GreenStalk, right?

As you can tell, color selection is all about preference! Choose the color you love. We warranty all of our colors for 5 years against fade and breakage so you can feel free to choose the color you want not based on how long you think it can last without looking bad.

Another benefit to growing with GreenStalk Vertical Planters is that all of our colors are BPA-free, BPS-free, and PVC-free. We also don’t use cheap recycled plastic since there’s really no way to know exactly what’s in it. All of our planters are made with the same high-quality, durable, food-safe, polypropylene plastic.

If you just can’t make up your mind, you can always order a multi-colored GreenStalk! We have several customers that love to mix and match their favorite colors to make a planter that’s all their own. Just leave us a comment on your order and we’ll be happy to work with you.
