The best window box is the one you can't see. Whatever you planted in there should be so happy that it cascades down the wall to spill onto the sidewalk, threatening to trip passersby. Coleus, sweet potato vine, and caladium: They like a little shade, which makes them the perfect combination to plant beneath a balcony or eave. Water them every day. Image via Stately.

I have an old washtub similar to this on a stand. Made room for it on the porch this year and it's out and ready for plants. I really like the coleus used in this picture. Lots of good ideas brewing.... Just waiting to be clear of frost/freeze worry and I'm good to go!

I really like this combination of coleus and sweet potato vines for a shady pot on my front porch.
