  • Beyond traditional mums and pansies, there are many different annual frost-hardy plants that provide color, texture and interest to fall containers.
  • Have some Halloween fun with your containers, with plants like Celosia “Dracula” or other dark flowering plants and red blooms.
  • Succulents are another way to boost containers and vessels, especially this time of year. Carve out a pumpkin top and fill with succulent plants.
  • Air plants are hot right now for indoor decorating, and can be added to elements of décor. For Halloween, you can find air plants that have some spooky qualities to them.
