Creating a high-impact container involves a dramatic vertical element (often called the "thriller"), a plant that will fill out the middle section (the "filler") and a plant that will tumble over the sides (the "spiller"). In this photo: canna, petunia (Supertunia) and a calibrachoa (Superbell).
The robust flowers of the canna and the dark purple foliage of the sweet potato vine make this design a study in the rich contrasts of the tropics. This garden uses a half-barrel or equivalent sized container, and will grow well in sun or partial shade and consistently moist soil.

Bright green sedum grows in the center top and repeats in the lowest tier. Crassula perforata forms a fluffy, reddish purple ring around the top tier. In the middle tier: more crassulas, green-purple Senecio jacobsenii, blue Senecio mandraliscae and a type of yellow-variegated aeonium called Kiwi. Silvery blue ruschia cascades from the lowest tier, and alongside it is a type of green and orange crassula called Campfire. The photo was taken at EuroAmerican Propagators in Bonsall, Calif.
