These waterwise plants require little care and give way to bright blooms in a range of cheerful hues and attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds from spring through fall. We've selected plants with complimentary foliage in muted colors, with an elegant white pot to reflect hot full sun conditions. Be sure to select a full sun area of your garden to display your arrangement. Feel free to scale up this project into a larger pot or even in a flower bed, these plants are wonderful in containers or in the ground.

These perennials will look their best when deadheaded to encourage more flowers, and fed with a fertilizer labeled to encourage more blooms. This container is meant to be a temporary feature in the garden; in fall, these plants can be separated and planted into the garden. If you want an arrangement that lasts for many years, consider choosing a larger planter than what is used below.
