Inspired by container

Stumped on new ways to keep pots exciting? Use the same ideas you admire in other gardens for your own containers! Just ask yourself what draws you to the space. Is it the engaging textures? An unexpected mix of color?
We love the combination of the spruce, hydrangeas and petunias here, but how can you replicate this feel on a smaller scale? See how we did it just ahead!

A small ‘Limelight’ hydrangea adds height and fits perfectly into the back of our container. The slow-growing dwarf blue spruce has the same textural effect as the spruce in the garden. And our finishing splash of color comes from the New Guinea impatiens — with a more upright shape than petunias, they don’t hide the container.
A – Hydrangea Hydrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’
B – Dwarf blue spruce Picea pungens ‘Glauca Globosa’
C – New Guinea impatiens Impatiens ‘Celebration Rose Star’
