    Incorporate Perennials. Don't be afraid to incorporate perennials into your spring containers. Then plant the perennials in your garden once the annuals start to fade. Here, for example, bacopa, purple pansy, white nemesia, and yellow strawflower mix well with 'Fire and Ice' hosta. Hint: Growing hostas and other perennials in tall containers can help protect them from hungry rabbits early in the season.

Use yellow to wake up your landscape once winter passes. Here, a golden container holds yellow primroses and 'Lemon Symphony' osteospermum. All that yellow contrasts beautifully with purple from 'Berries & Cream Sachet' nemesia, 'Caitlin's Giant' ajuga, and columbine. Hint: Echo the color of your house in your container garden, or use it to complement blooms from your yard for extra appeal.

Fill Your Deck with Plants - Soften your space with beautiful blooms and lush greenery from container gardens. It's easy to tuck a few containers here and there.
