Create an effortless salute to red, white and blue blooms with these clever combination strategies!
 
Instead of mixing colors in one pot, try a stepped skyline of containers, each holding a single color bloom.  The radiating shape of these daisies makes them feel like they are bursting out like fireworks.  Use different sizes of planters and heights.  It really adds to the character of the pots and creates a wonderful and colorful look.
 
To successfully marry plants in a hanging basket, do what the pro's do.  Combine one type of large flowers like the red petunia shown in the photograph with smaller scaled trailing accent flowers like the cobalt blue lobelias, periwinkle verbenas and white bacopa copa.  Create the perfect blend of impact and drape all inside a terracotta hanging planter or ceramic pot.
 
A bright patchwork of red marigolds and blue campanulas reads patriotic when planted in a shallow white pot or ceramic bowl.  The low bowl shape draws attention to the vibrant blooms rather than the container.  When placed on the ground near the door, the arrangement is the perfect way to greet guests!
