Container Gardening Flowers: Pansy = A, Osteospermum = B, Coreopsis = C, Tulip = D

This container resembles a natural spring landscape, by using plants that bloom in late spring and early summer in full sun to part shade.

Light blue/purple pansies fill the edges of the container.

In the center, purple osteospermum and small yellow pansies add to the pastel color scheme.

Right behind, pale colored branches give height and act as a focal point in this combination.

The grouping of tulips in the back provide foliage contrast, and when in bloom, a splash of color.

Pale yellow Coreopsis (Moonbeam) contrasts nicely with the light blue and purple of the plants in the front. Coreopsis blooms profusely from spring to fall.

Remember to leave tulips in the container after they bloom. Tulip bulbs need to store energy for next year's optimal growth, so if you plan on planting the same bulbs, leave them in place until the leaves die.

If you don't plan on using the same bulbs, you can dig them out and fill the empty spot with another plant when they start to look shabby.
