Swedish Ivy
is traditionally a houseplant, but can be a charming addition to container gardens.

The leaves of the trailing, light green foliage are thick, waxy and have scalloped edges.

Candy Corn Vines come in several varieties. This one is sometimes called a cigar vine.

Its small tubular flowers are unique and add bits of color in all the right places.

Dianthus is another easy-to-grow perennial that comes in a variety of colors and is tolerant to varying soil conditions, but prefers partial to full sun. This particular variety of dianthus is a compact version of this gardening favorite.

Petunias are a staple in any glower garden-container or otherwise. They are tolerant of most any condition and when deadheaded, bloom clear up until the first hard frost.

Ornamental Grasses in their miniature form, are striking centerpieces to container gardens. Be careful, though, as they can get out of hand quickly.
