Container Flower Gardening Ideas: Perilla, Torenia

A simple yet tasteful combination of deep red, mid-green and pink/white makes this container garden flower arrangement look really special.

Perilla provides the backdrop. Try to find the two-color variety that grows with both green and red leaves. The red brings out the pink, while the green balances the look of the display.

Available in a ton of different colors and tones, Torenia runs from yellow all the way through to midnight blue. In this case, choose a two-tone pink or cerise, or experiment.

If you can't find the red Perilla, then pretty much any color of Torenia will work with the green version.
