everlasting mixed container

Thrillers, fillers and spillers - the recipe for a great mixed container!  And this 3-plant combo has been one of the toughest while still looking lovely containers I've ever grown.  I planted the container way back in May, it filled out well by August and as you can see still going strong now although getting a bit stringy/leggy.  The thriller is a striking orange/red Lantana, the filler a neutral Coleus and the purple double Petunia makes a good contrasting spiller.  These were all arbitrary picks based on what was going in the trash at the greenhouse I worked at but I must say these hybrids are real toughies and keep incredibly vibrant colour even in constant beating sun!
