Planted containers are useful for reinforcing or complementing colors used in the garden.  It's a simple way to add a unique bit of flair, which you can change from year to year.  This combo emphasizes shades of maroon and gold by pairing them with a lush green background that makes the color pop.
 
1.  'Indigo Spires' Salvia (Salvia 'Indigo Spires')
2.  'Ace of Spades' Ornamental Sweet Potato Vine (ipomoea batatas)
3.  Superbells Plum Calibrachoa (Calibrachoa)
4.  'Careless Love' Coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides)
5.  Zinfandel Oxalis (Oxalis vulcanicola)
 
What we love about this potted display is the fact that it is so packed together.  It looks out of control and wild but stunningly beautiful.  Try mixing it up with different textures, compelling colors, outstanding pottery and different plant materials.  Don't over think your potted displays.  Be creative and have fun.
 
A mistake that is often made is just using flowers.  Don't forget there are unique plants and foliage that can enhance any arrangement or potted display.  Move beyond the basics you see at your local nursery center.

priti - thanks for the kind words. potatoes are known for being easy to grow but i have no experience with them. i am sure there is plenty of information on the internet. fruit is fun and easy to grow.
