Perennials, annuals, grasses, succulents, vegetables, and fruits. Overwhelmed with endless possibilities? Being informed will help you make the best choice for your combination containers.

Perennials are cold hardy plants that last for more than two growing seasons. Annual plants flower and die within the same growing season. Grasses can be perennial or annual and will add motion to containers. Succulents will create great texture in pots for those hot, dry, sunny areas. With too little space or too little time for a garden why not try container vegetable gardening. Even some small fruits work well on containers. Herb container gardening will offer wonderful aromas and fresh flavor in your cooking.

Perennials can stand alone in your container or be combined with colorful annuals. Graceful grasses will sway in the breeze. Pop sweet blueberries into your mouth or add delicious grape tomatoes to your salads. From simple small balcony containers to a landscape full of garden containers have fun and enjoy the endless possibilities!
