Plant Combinations: Obsession Nandina Containers for Easter Morning

No matter the season, Obsession Nandina serves up a warm welcome in entryway containers. 

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.
