Here’s the thing about fall color–while it’s a bonfire of intense red/orange/yellow, it’s also the season for deep purples, wines, rusts, browns, golds, and many shades of green.
So, with that in mind, here are a few ideas for color combinations to consider when designing containers to take you through the season. We’ve included some ideas about which goes well with specific house colors. Put the color chip trios against your house and see what works.
Each of these specific plant combinations will work perfectly in a large (18″ or above) container and, because they’re perennials or evergreens, will come back year after year. That said, try not to be too concerned about finding these exact plants, and instead see what your garden center has in similar hues. The idea is to play with plants to see what thrills your eye. We’d love to see how you decorate your outdoor spaces for fall. Pictures, please!
