TIP: Creating Attractive Combination Containers

It's SPRING! Which means you can start filling your landscape, deck and balcony with colorful combos. Here are a few tips to make the most attractive combination containers.

Using a mix of upright, mounding and trailing plants is a quick and easy way to create eye-catching container pairings.


Thrillers, Fillers & Spillers

Dwarf Fountain Grass
Upright (thriller, vertical) plants add vertical interest and a sense of height to planting arrangements, making them more lively and dynamic.

Gazania Kiss Mix
Mounding (filler, anchor) plants are used to create stability in planting arrangements. They bring a sense of balance to even the boldest combinations.

Silver Licorice Plant
Trailing (spiller, spreading) plants are the final "accessory" in planting arrangements. They fill in gaps, soften edges and tie all the elements together for a truly finished look.
