Dracaena, often called ‘spikes', come in a variety of textures.

While most are green, some, like the one pictured here, can be red, yellow or variegated.

Dracaena don't require much water or care and grow upward rather than outward, making them perfect container garden centerpieces.

Ivy Geraniums have single blooms rather than the larger multi-bloom flower heads of ‘traditional' geraniums. They do, however, come in a multitude of colors and prefer drier, well-drained soils as traditional geraniums do.

Ivy geraniums tend to grow upward and outward. This makes for a perfect layering effect when used with the dracaena and the lower growing wave petunias.

Wave Petunias are colorful, easy-to-grow container garden staples and serve well as a ‘ground' cover for containers. Their easy care and longevity when it comes to blooming make them a perfect partner for geraniums and dracaena. Be sure to deadhead to keep the colorful blooms coming.
