Container Flower Gardening Ideas: Red Salvia

Some may find a display of a single color dull, but we think it's classy and of course, super-easy to create!

Using Red Salvia to brighten up a darker corner of your yard or patio is a simple, yet effective plan.

The contrast between the deep green, shiny leaves and the lovely clusters of tomato-red blossoms is simple, natural elegance.

You can also alternative with Blue Salvia to have a breathtakingly lovely contrast. The sapphire against the tomato really breaks up the display.

These options are great for people with no natural inclination to mix and match colors and shapes. You simply plant your container with the single seed and you're ready!

single bloom per pot
by: chris

Have been container gardening on my condo decks for several years now. For the cedar stained deck I spray painted the containers a hammered copper color to match the deck--and fill each with a pink or white bloom blending with the patio cushions. The coleus, begonias, impatiens overflow the pots and it is a stunning look receiving many complements.
