Strategically located containers can be instrumental in solving a common garden-making dilemma: shielding unsightly items from view even when you don't have soil to plant in. This trio of low-maintenance plants in large containers have a purpose; they hide the AC unit from view from the seating area as well as diminishing the presence of the house with the softening effect of foliage. The Autumn Moon maple, the small tree with yellow foliage, is slow-growing and will be able to be grown in this container for a long while. Its emerging foliage is blushed with a hint of red and its fall color is very good. With the big blue hosta and the bun-shaped evergreen shrub, these three a pleasing shape study from spring to fall.
