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.

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