CRAFT: Bloom

The third installment in my container garden series is a colorful combination using every color in the rainbow. The first container was a dramatic and stylish pairing of dark purple and golden yellows. The second was a modern mix of de-saturated warm and cool colors, and the focus was on pairing textures. This container is all about brightly colored classic flowers that will bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Place a tall plant that you can train up a trellis in the back, and then fill in with dainty little flowers like primrose. I bridged the gap between the tall trellis and the low primrose with bushy daisies and big sage leaves. The final piece are low growing plants that will drape down the front. Voila!
Ingredients:
