Load a Tiki Planter with Your Favorite Colors

Here are a few ways to customize your container to get the color and look you want: Create a pristine white display (A) using white pampas grass and white petunias, then edge with white bacopas that spill over the sides. For a cheerful, sunny look (B), surround a single foxglove with Marguerite daisies and yellow calibrachoa. Planting in a shady space? Plant a pot (C) with a few coleus for height, then add colorful begonias and flowing licorice plants.
