Thrillers, Fillers and Spillers

Every mixed container planting or grouping of pots needs plants with different design characteristics. I think they need a thriller-a dramatic, eye-catching centerpiece plant; several fillers, mounding billowy partners to nestle around the thriller; and a spiller, a cascading plant that tumble s over the edge of the pot. This PowerPoint presentation offers a rundown of some of the best of each type as well as design ideas for creative containers.

Hiya Steve,

Planting up a container is like making a flower arrangement on a bigger scale. I suppose the same rules apply.

You are showing a very successful combination.
Mine started off right this year, but then the snails moved in and seriously disturbed the balance ;-)
