August Container Gardening Recipe 683x1024

Inspired by whimsical terracotta pollinator-designed pots sporting bees, ladybugs, butterflies, hummingbirds, and dragonflies, this container is full of pollinator attractors in yummy shades of orange.

  1. Crossandra Is a wonderful perennial that will thrill all year long until the first frost. The hummingbirds and butterflies will love them too.
  2. Sunpatiens® Compact Orange These bright orange flower-packed plants are perfect for any pot. They can thrive in 6 hours of sun to up to 4 hours of shade. A perfect easy care pot filler.
  3. Orange Marigold This classic heat loving flower will bloom spring through fall here in Florida. The compact variety fills in nicely.
  4. Gaillardia also known as blanket flower, it comes in many shades or orange yellow and red. It is heat, drought, salt, and deer tolerant. They do well as cut flowers too.
  5. Creeping Jenny one of our all-time favorite spillers. This bright green mass of small heart-shaped leaves will mix perfectly, able to take full to partial sun.
