Petunias are favorites of every gardener.

They come in a variety of colors, thrive in both sun and shade and bloom continually through late fall.

The petunia will be the color focal point of this container, so make a statement.

Geraniums prefer soil that is on the dry side. The fullness of their flower heads gives texture to this arrangement. Be sure to deadhead for continual blooming, though.

Purple Fountain Grass gives height and contrast. You'll have to transplant at season's end, however, as it can grow to 30 inches tall. You can trim the tops if it grows too quickly.

Shooting Star flowers are low-growing and act as a ‘ground cover' for your container garden. They are drought and heat tolerant and thrive in full sun in loamy soil.

The blooms of this member of the daisy family are fragrant and will bloom continually for the full growing season.
