How to Create Your Own Combination Planters

Its easy to design & build your own combination planters using our Planter Recipe list below. When creating your own combination planter, the optimal arrangement contains:

Thriller Plant: These tall and striking plants are placed in the center or the back of the container and often lead as the focal point of your arrangement.

Spiller Plant: We recommend using at least one spiller plant. These varieties "spill" over the pot's edge creating a dramatic waterfall of color.

Filler Plant: We recommend using filler plants fill cover all the nooks and crannies between your Thrillers and Spillers to complete your arrangement.

Tips for Designing a Combination Planter

Use a mix of different varieties for texture and contrasting color etc.  The total quantity will depend on container size. See our suggested combinations to determine how many plants for sizes you'll need for a 12" to 18" container. Our Planter Recipes are broken down by sun to part sun and shade to part shade. You will notice some plants will work in all exposures.
