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.
Thrillers, Fillers & Spillers
|Upright (thriller, vertical) plants add vertical interest and a sense of height to planting arrangements, making them more lively and dynamic.

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

|Trailing (spiller, spreading) plants are the final “accessory” in planting arrangements. They fill in gaps, soften edges and tie all the elements together for a truly finished look.
