This green and black stocking features small, wardrobe-inspired touches. The cuff is made from plaid fabric cut to size and is attached with iron-on adhesive tape, while the front showcases leather toggles normally seen on coats and jackets.

A native plant, meadow rue (Thalictrum aquilegiifolium) adds height and fine textured beauty to plantings. ‘Black Stockings’ sweetens any scene with black stems that contrast prettily with blue-green leaves and lavender blooms. Meadow rue flowers in mid- to late summer and makes a good streamside or back-of-the-border plant. Blossoms beckon hummingbirds and butterflies. Plants grow 48 inches tall by 24 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 5-9.

Brown paper packages tied with twine rest under the tree next to a wooden rocking horse. A yellow yarn wreath, light green polka dot stocking, and green stuffed toys add color against the dark drown painted brick wall.

A bold print depicting red stockings, pink pumps and green paint is particularly eye-catching.
