Intense yellow lantana and purple angelonia, softened by a purplish pink lantana and osteospermum.

Angelonia is an annual that performs well in containers.

Its upright habit, up to a foot in height and bright, saturated color offers great contrast against the yellow trailing lantana.

Angelonia is a tough annual that loves full sun and can tolerate heat with reasonable watering. Make sure the container has good drainage. The blooms look like small orchids, lending an elegant look to any container combination. A trim might be needed during mid-season to prolong their blooming period.

In this container combination, the dark bluish purple spikes of angelonia's flowers work as a background for two lantana plants, in deep yellow and pink-purple.

Lantana is also a sun loving very tolerant plant perfect for container gardening. It's an easy-going choice that is available in a large variety of shades.

Osteospermum's muted shade of pink purple helps to relax the contrasting combination of yellow and purple.Want more? Use the arrows below to see more lovely container garden designs, all with identified plants and care advice.
