Container Plant Combo with Foliage Focus

The downward draping version of the golden boxleaf honeysuckle and the strappy burgundy cordyline contrast in both foliage color and plant shape and together create all-season structure in this planting combination well-suited for a large container. Brightly variegated and bold foliage of the canna brings drama, fun, and an upward plant form. Trusty Rusty coleus makes a reliable filler, and finally, embellish with long-blooming flowery fun; Diascia 'Flirtation Orange' and Lobularia 'Snow Princess'. This combination would work well in a largish container and look great for months on end with minimal care and effort; a good choice for adding summer color to your front entry.
