Window Box Container Recipe
"A lush cascade of color spilling from a window box provides instant curb appeal," writes Mavis Shaw of South Pomfret, Vermont. "Most of these annuals thrive in full sun, but dappled light protects the licorice plant's vivid green."
Why it works: This container is packed with colors that complement each other— primarily pink, purple, and greens with a splash of yellow. The window box is well balanced with plants that grow upright and plants that trail.
