Colorful Summer Container Combo in Orange and Yellow

This fun plant combination is perfect for a container, basket, or window box in bright shade, filtered, or morning sun. Colorful foliage and wonderful textures carry the show from spring to frost, but there's plenty of flowers to keep the hummingbirds and flower-lovers happy. Scarlet red blooms stand out against the large, glossy, chartreuse leaves of the Angel Wings begonia. The abutilon displays an abundance of large, melon-colored flowers that are complemented by the coral tones of the coleus. A ferny froth of lush green foliage adds a cooling effect.
