Plant Combinations: Obsession™ Nandina Containers for Easter Morning

Celebrate the season with colorful foliage and playful décor.

With brilliant red new growth, Obsession™ Nandina ignites the spring landscape, providing endless opportunities for Easter containers. Try tucking a few plants into baskets or nestle decorative eggs among the foliage in large containers. Accent the rosy hues with spring blooms or the lively foliage of golden creeping Jenny.

Southern Living® Nandinas pair beautifully together. Combine the vibrant chartreuse foliage of ‘Lemon Lime’ Nandina with Obsession™ for a warm and inviting container, or layer with compact Flirt™ Nandina. Textural accents add dimension to containers.

The narrow blades of ‘Everest’ EverColor® Carex and variegated foliage of ‘Meerlo’ Lavender provide texture as well as evergreen color. Transition into summer with flowering perennials such as achillea (yarrow). Obsession™ Nandina is incredibly versatile, allowing you to mix and match plant material in several containers for a dynamic display.
