Plant Combinations: Vibrant Color for Containers and Beds

Complementary colors shine in this combo perfect for sunny borders or patio pots. 

This versatile trio brings energy and excitement to the landscape with vivid color and dynamic form. Complementary colors lie opposite one another on the color wheel and create a powerful display when used in combination. The rich burgundy blades of Design-A-Line™ Cordyline stand in high contrast against the golden foliage of ‘Sunshine’ Ligustrum, providing a punch of color for big impact. Saucy™ Wine Salvia repeats the purple hues and brings a balance of green foliage to the mix. Use this vibrant combo in entryway gardens and porch containers to make a lasting first impression on visitors, or brighten patios with mixed containers bursting with texture.
