Bigger is better when it comes to ease of establishing and maintaining healthy plants. When plants are grown in larger containers they can establish larger root systems that support their growth in the heat of the summer. Larger containers don’t dry out as quickly so plants are less stressed as temperatures climb into the 90’s. The larger container also provides more space for the larger annuals to spread out and thrive.
Three kinds of plants are used in this container. All the selections are recognized for their heat and sun resiliency, and their water requirements are all compatible.
