Color and shape make a statement in this container grouping for full sun.
An analogous color combination of red, orange and purple in which orange takes the center stage.
Both containers are filled with small orange zinnias. Zinnia Profusion Orange is a great choice, since it isn't as prone to powdery mildew as other zinnias are.
Purple tradescantia is planted in the front of the first container, to echo the color of the planters.
In the back, a very unusual-looking tall accent plant: Papyrus.
Papyrus is an ornamental grass, better suited for wet, even boggy areas. It will grow in a container if less water is provided in part shade, though it won't reach full size (up to 8 feet if given the proper conditions).
Sweet Potato Vine (Sweet Caroline) spills down the side of the second container next to red trailing petunia.
Zinnia fills the rest of the space, interspersed with wispy ornamental grass.
