24 Container Recipes Featuring New Flowers

Trying new flowers in my garden is one of my favorite things to do—the sheer possibilities make me a little giddy!

Having the chance to experiment with new plant container combinations is a great way to mix creativity with my knowledge about plants. However, it isn’t always easy to pinpoint good recipes since you need to keep in mind each plant's requirements for sun and water in addition to the vigor of each. Though a combination might be pretty, it could be one that won’t go the distance during the summer months. We’ve created many different recipes using our newest plants—here are 24 of my favorites from the ones we tried.
