Best Ideas for Fall Container Gardening
Bring a seasonal splash of color to your entryway by mixing and matching eye-popping blooms with rustic grasses and foliage in your fall container gardens.
Follow our rule of thriller, filler, spiller for a container that's guaranteed to impress. A cone-shaped, evergreen arborvitae works perfectly as an attention-grabbing thriller. To brighten up the look of your container, fill up the pot with multicolored ‘Pandora’s Box’ pansies and have variegated English ivy spill over the sides for a dramatic visual.
The striking foliage of collards is a decorative choice to fill containers. Group pots to keep plenty of fresh greens at hand.
Combine the season's hottest hues in a vibrant mix of 'Snapshot Orange' snapdragons, 'Purple Pixie' loropetalum, and bright 'Penny Clear Yellow' violas. Tuck in the showy foliage of 'Sparkling Burgundy' heuchera to complete the look.
Autumn colors served as the inspiration for this striking display of lush 'Vintage Harvest' hydrangea blooms and rex begonia. Bird's nest, and silver lace ferns contribute to the delicacy of the design and serve as a vibrant green counterpoint to the muted colors of the hydrangeas. As a final touch, lacy angel vine is added to the mix, allowing it to spill romantically over the edge. The result? A beautiful indoor display with staying power.
This vintage wicker planter, snagged at a flea market, overflows with mums and foliage. For another amazing look, try these plants in a window box.
