Head planter ideas in stone, cement or concrete are one of the coolest gardening projects to come along in a while. Don’t you just love how the plants become the hair? If it’s well-thought out, it can be charming. Like Medusa – the standard, really. But you can do almost any hairstyle you think would work with your head planter, there are so many varieties of plant to choose from.
1. Historical Figures as Planters
2. The Men of the Garden
This fellow’s hair is crazy, it looks like he had a rough night. Again, Burro’s Tail. An interesting tidbit about this cactus – it has never been found in the wild. It was discovered in Mexico as a domesticated plant on someone’s porch. Little did they know how many head planter ideas they would spawn.

This guy looks like he’s been in one boxing match too many – talk about a Roman nose. Burro’s Tail cactus does the job here.
This guy looks so natural like he was born to this hair. Pencil cactus is another good choice to accent your head planter.
3. The Medusa Head Planter
Medusa at her finest – or maybe Bob Marley? Love the locks on this gentleman. He looks like he has it together. Stone planters get so wonderfully patinated with the green moss. This is when a planter’s head looks it’s finest – framed by long, tossed… hair.
Medusa is the first thing almost everyone thinks of and she’s a classic. A monster, with hair of snakes, from Greek mythology. She even has a cactus named after her (the one below). A heavy duty head planter in stone with a spiky, spindly, trailing cactus make a great likeness to her.
4. The Ladies in Stone
This sleeping maiden head planter has a serene and peaceful look. You’ll see that Hens & Chicks, another type of succulent, is a popular species for these planters.
