Container Flower Gardening Ideas: Coleus, Salvia, Gazania Talent Mix

While the colors of this display are understated, they are also very varied, with purple, white, yellow, red and green.

Coleus is one of the most amazing "base color" plants you'll come across. It's available in a huge range of colors and shades. You can pretty much tone in Coleus with any display. The challenge is finding the right one to match your other flowers.

Your choices with Salvia are more limited, though their colors are incredible. Deep, rich blue or red is the order of the day. This one shows blue.

Finally, the large flowers are Gazania. Again, these are available in different colors, so in theory you could create multiple versions of this container flower garden display with matching plants, but different looks!
