Ten Fall Container Garden Ideas To Get You Inspired

A beautiful planter combination using a variety of colors and textures is a wonderful way to extend your gardening season. To continue to enjoy your outdoor spaces and maximize your floral displays, make sure to include some plantings especially designed for cooler weather.

Recently, we visited the H. O. Smith Botanic Garden in Central Pennsylvania which always offers stunning views in every season. We would love to share some of the September plantings we saw there to give you ideas for your own container gardening.

Consider a tall focal point like this Ornamental Millet.
Colorful pansies are a perfect cool weather flower, combined here with beautiful ornamental kale and a mum in the background.
Ornamental grass, dahlias, petunias, and daisies make a striking combinations.

This bright red coleus continues to look impressive in September.
For a more formal planting, try a small tree form plant like this beautiful magnolia.
A mass planting of greenery, ivy, and mums makes a stunning display.
Coleus adds some bright fall color.
This gorgeous, unique container planting showcases a multitude of succulents.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing what kind of ideas master gardners come up with for their fall plantings. I will be working on my own containers this week, and while they will likely not be as spectacular as these, it’s so much fun to put them together and enjoy the outdoors.

Have a beautiful day, and try some new gardening ideas! 🙂
