The desert gourd planter is a testament to the beauty that occurs naturally in the living environment, even in the harsh desert climates. Over the centuries, African, Latin and South American peoples have created vessels using dried indigenous gourds, creating functional works of art. A contemporary take on these ancient artifacts, you can request these decorative modern planters in our short and medium designs for planter groupings.
This cast stone planter replicates those fine rustic pieces. With its textural surface and organic shape, the desert gourd planter looks like it may have grown straight out of the desert ground via its root-like legs. When combined with our small and medium gourd planters the tall desert gourd creates a lovely visual display on a terrace or patio, or in a xeriscaped garden. It is the perfect touch for tribal and rustic themes.
