Coleus is another one of those staples of a container garden... and with good reason.

The foliage of the coleus plant is variegated and usually includes one shade of green, which is complimented by white, yellow, red, purple or orange.

Coleus plants do best when they are kept to a height of 6 to 10 inches. You do this by pinching off the tops of the plants.

Doing so allows the plant to grow ‘out', making it fuller and bushier. You can put the tops you pinch off in water to root, thus propagating new plants to use.

They are drought-tolerant and prefer partial to full sun.

Begonias come in a number of varieties. This flowering variety features star-shaped blooms that dangle from their stem.

Begonias blooms come in all colors and shapes. The ones in this container garden prove that.

Remember... begonias like partial shade and soil that is not too wet.
