Thriller, Filler, Spiller

in Helpful Tips, Plants

When planting flowers in a container, there are three words to remember in design - Thriller, Filler, and Spiller.  Select tall "thriller" plants for the center/back of the container, "spiller" plants to flow over the edge, and "filler" plants for in between.  We've put together a helpful container design planner that guides you on the number and types of plants suitable for your container size and shape, and a list of some plants that qualify in each of the three categories.
