When planting a container, select one or more plants that fit these categories to make sure you have a well balanced design. The number of plants you choose depends on the size of the container. If there is only room for one of each, that is fine.

Thrill plants provide height to your container.

Spill plants cascade over the side of the pot.

Fill plants fill in the spaces in the middle of the pot.
