A Splash of Color

Grouping your containers together will create a mini garden. You can place bright yellow and orange mums together side by side, all of these incredible colors create a warm welcome to your front porch.

Another great addition for your entryway or patio is to select two or three small red jalapeño peppers.  Please this colorful peppers and grow in clay pots. A group of hot peppers provides a nice pop of color.

The options are endless, Vibrant lime greens and deep reds in the variegated leaves of Heuchera and Coleus contrast with the plumes of ornamental grass. The natural colors of fall create the prefect contrast for container garden planting.

Window boxes

A great and versatile way to add charm and a burst of color is to include window boxes. Simply include a colorful mixture of both annuals and perennials, which can include Mum and Supertunia.  These deep autumn tones, use dwarf ornamental grass, yellow chrysanthemums and ornamental kale.
