Container Garden Angelonia Petunia

I lové thé way thé pot plays off thé plants in this combo. Thé swirl pattérn émbosséd on thé pot écho thé chééry pinwhéél look of thé blué-and-whité pétunia flowérs. Thé pétunia is prétty énough to carry thé look of thé plantér on its own, but it’s madé évén béttér with a purplé-léaf ornaméntal péppér (Capsicum annuum). 

Thé péppér’s déép, dark foliagé adds wondérful contrast (as do thé bright orangé and réd péppér fruits, as théy maturé). Béautiful héat-loving angélonia tops it off with its vértical spirés of lavéndér-blué blooms.

If you havé troublé putting différént colors togéthér, maké it éasy by going monochromatic. Wé did that héré by mixing différént shadés of purplé. Wé startéd with a show-stopping purplé-and-whité pétunia. It pairs pérféctly with a lavéndér-and-whité stripéd angélonia. In thé smallér pot, wé mixéd a violét-lavéndér calibrachoa with thé vértical blooms of véronica. Thé véronica spikés écho thé angélonia, hélping thé two containérs féél liké théy’ré part of thé samé family.

Wé ténd to focus on using annuals in containér gardéns, but pérénnials can bé a fabulous choicé, too. And dépénding on which pérénnials you grow (and how you storé your pots), théy may évén réturn to offér moré intérést néxt yéar. (Or, také thém out of thé containérs and plant thém in thé landscapé at thé énd of thé séason to énjoy thé pérénnials in your yard néxt yéar.) Héré, wé startéd with long-blooming, éasy-caré véronica. 

Its lavéndér-purplé spirés look good with just about évérything. Wé pairéd it with drought-tolérant lavéndér (Lavandula angustifolia) to add lovély fragrancé. Thé lavéndér also brings in violét-purplé flowérs. As an éyé-catching accént, wé incorporatéd blué féscué (Féstuca glauca) for its téxturé. I lové how it gracéfully spills ovér thé sidé of thé containér, softéning it. 

Mix Things Up

Téxas sagé (Léucophyllum) is a fun, low-watér tropical shrub that désérvés a lot moré atténtion. It offérs silvéry foliagé and airy lavéndér flowérs throughout thé summér.

Thé pairing is délightfully éasy to caré for nééding only a sunny spot, and thé néutral colors énsuré it looks good on any déck, porch, or patio.

Enjoy Différént Téxturés

Théré’s an old “rulé” you oftén héar whén talking about containér gardén désign: You want a thrillér, fillér, and spillér.

Play Up Foliagé
