Create Sensational Pots and Planters this summer

The structure of your container planting, that is. When you're selecting plants in 4” or 6” pots, you need to think about their eventual height, shape and growth habit. Most plants are either upright, broad or trailing.

The most successful container combinations usually include at least one of each form. Start with a tall, upright plant, such as Purple Fountain Grass or a fancy-leaved, dwarf canna lily. Add one or two broad, mid-height plants such as heliotrope, coleus, African daisies or dwarf dahlias. Then select one or two trailing forms, such as ivy geranium, sweet potato vine, bacopa or licorice plant .

Of course another sure-fire way to create a strong, architectural statement is to place just one bold plant in the container. Candidates for this effect would include a thick, upright clump of bamboo or the perfect symmetry of New Zealand flax .

Consider flanking an entryway with a pair of dwarf Alberta spruce or false cypress. A clump of ornamental grass, such as feather reed grass, makes a bold statement.

Or you could focus all the attention on a trailing form; envision a tall, celadon-green urn filled with nothing but a burgundy-colored sweet potato vine.
