If you want to add some colour and beauty to your home, you don’t have to plant large flower gardens to achieve the desired effect. Spring planters are an excellent way to add a little beauty to your home without the work of large flower gardens. Plus, the versatility of the planters allows you to move them as you please, helping you enjoy your plants regardless of where you may be in your yard. A great way to add the colour and the splendor you desire is by combining multiple flowers together in the pot. Here are a few combinations that work and will provide beautiful arrangements this spring.
If you desire spring flowers for pots that have many colours, this combination may be ideal. The annual flowers in this combination need part to full sun and bloom in the spring and summer seasons. You can purchase many of these flowers in multiple colours, creating a rainbow of flowers to enjoy all season. Flowers included are:
- Million Bells – Calibrachoa Parviflora (consider white, pink, and other colour options)

Perennial plants and flowers can create gorgeous planters. However, you will need to think ahead because planting spring bulbs must be done in the early spring months when the temperatures are cooler. For this combination, the variety of flowers and plants create varying heights, textures, and contrast, giving your garden a lot of character. Most of these flowers need full sun and will bloom during the late spring or summer months. Flowers included are:
- Shasta Daisy
- Periwinkle – Vinca Minor
- Blue Marvel Perennial Sage
You don’t have to fill every spring planter with bright colourful flowers. You can also create beautiful planters with a lot of deep, rich green leaves that will surely be the talk of the town. Or, if you prefer, you can choose plants with red, purple, or orange leaves. All the plants in this combination do best in part-shade conditions. These plants include:
- Siberian Bugloss
- Forever Purple Coral Bells
- Fire Chief Coral Bells
- Irish Moss
There are many plant and flower combinations that work. However, as you try to design a planter for your home, make sure you take into consideration each flower’s sunlight condition, season, and textures.
