    Containers Aged to Perfection From furniture to containers, colors are getting more muted. Containers with an aged look -- patinas, encrustations, crackled finishes -- are becoming the focal point in gardens. Use plants with contrasting colors and foliage to highlight the rustic exterior of your planter.

"People tend to get too busy and complicated in their container plantings." Brian likes this golden sun-loving succulent for its heat and drought tolerance. And the rusty urns show off the needle-shape foliage as it turns from chartreuse in spring to golden yellow in summer and to a rich orangey-amber in autumn.
