It’s hot here in the tri-state, and so are these container gardens. These crazy and colorful annual combinations growing in planters and pots scream “throw out the traditional color wheel!” There are no rules when it comes to color in garden design.” If you love seeing yellow, purple, orange, blue, yellow, mauve, gold, lime-green, red, peach, and burgundy flowers all mixed together in one garden, you can do it easily by mixing annuals in containers. If you’re an eclectic gardener; this is the slideshow for you!
Each photograph contains assorted annuals in containers and planters in town, along the streets, and in the garden; so urban gardeners and apartment dwellers, this one’s for you too! Remember, a garden is a living and breathing masterpiece, a one-of-a-kind extension of the gardener themselves. Plant gardens that not only breathe life back into the Earth, but more importantly, back into yourselves. Express yourself! All of these annuals grow well in full sun in Philadelphia and all of Zone 6. If you like flowers, hot colors, and textures, it doesn’t get any better than this.
