Fun Combination Planter Ideas

Combining different varieties or species in one container or garden bed is certainly not new but almost everyone could use a few new ideas to spark their creativity. So National Garden Bureau has perused our members’ new variety submissions, including recent AAS Winners to come up with some possible combinations you might want to try. For simplicity sake, we are only suggesting planting pairs but feel free to add a third of fourth variety, depending on the size of your planter or planting area and of course, your own personal taste.

Many great container designers suggest a thriller element for the container, meaning something tall, bold and/or dramatic. If you like the look of a softened planter edge, then by all means, add some sort of vining element if the combinations below do not offer a vining/cascading plant. Additionally, adding foliage plants to a combination planter can add texture and additional color variations.

Just experiment and have fun with your own combinations–after all, you’re the one who gets to enjoy the fruits of your labors. 

Let’s Go Garden!
