Design beautiful annual containers with our foolproof color guide to container gardening

Posted by Julie Joyce on Tue, Apr 05, 2016 @ 11:25 AM

We put together this color wheel to help our customers plan their annual containers a couple years ago but it is so popular with our customers we needed to post it again. This one page chart is a simple guide for creating combinations with beautiful colors combinations, along with height and size considerations.

Start with pot size at the bottom. Once you know how many plants you need, choose your Thriller plant for the middle of the container. Choose annuals according to color and sun needs. The annuals we have recommended are our favorites for great, low maintenance blooms with lots of pizazz. Enjoy!
