1. At least one plant for height (this doesn't always work with smaller containers)
2. Contrasting colors....mix dark colors with light colors, etc.
3. Mixtures of heights and/or textures
|Here is the empty planter|
|I add my plant for height, in this case it's Black and Blue Salvia|
|Then I start placing plants around and rearranging until I like the colors.|
|Once I have the plants in place then I add soil and plant them.|
Some other containers from this weekend:
