A flowery decor easy to create
Many flowering plants are suitable for growing in pots or planters. To compose a flowery summer decor, some are preferred because they are both easy to cultivate and particularly decorative . There are some must-haves of course, but also less classic ones that have the advantage of renewing the interest of the flowery decor in summer.
Use pots, tubs or planters to compose a floral atmosphere can play on various combinations of plants, colors and heights. These are not the only advantages (I invite you to discover why use pots in a small garden )!
Depending on the available surface, you have the opportunity to create a real staging . For example, choosing dominant yellow (yellow anthemis ) and purple ( rudbéckia ) highlighted by pots of a bright blue. You can also imagine your flowery decor around a unique color. The bright pink of some flowering pots, for example, will certainly wake up a monochrome environment elsewhere.
The marriage of colors in the garden helps to give it a personality. A judicious choice of colors that make up your floral decor is therefore essential!
A well-adapted floral decoration
The choice of flowery decor is also related to the light intensity that you can offer to your potted plants. The exhibition of your garden space will determine the nature of the flowering plants that will compose your flowery atmosphere during the summer.
If your garden area is very bright , you can install the classic petunias of course. Remember to associate them with verbenas ( Verbena ), able to form compact tufts or to fall along the container, to compose a generous and durable flowery decor. These resistant verbena will also be enjoyed in the company of the spectacular Dimorphoteca ( Osteospermum ) that blooms continuously throughout the summer (it is also perfect solo!).
For a bright exhibition, do not forget the abundant nemesis ( Diascia ) that goes with everything and offers a palette ranging from white to pink through purple and blue.
For an original and refined composition, the elegant and aerial cosmos can be associated with variegated ivy and brachycome ( Brachyscome ) serving as flowery muslin. In addition, the flowering is well balanced between upright vegetation and falling plants!
In case of less sunny or half-shaded exposure, do not deprive yourself of the beautiful flowering of the hydrangea ( Hydrangea macrophylla ). It is perfect, alone or accompanied ( plumbago for example), to compose an opulent floral decor. In shady situation, also count on impatiens of New Guinea which bloom abundantly, without too much care and offer a range of varied tones.
The flowers in pots for balcony and terrace allow to imagine a flowery decoration perfectly adapted to the smallest garden space. For a greater freedom of composition, the pots on wheels are quite suitable. They allow you to easily change the staging according to his desires or constraints!
All you have to do is choose from the many possible varieties to create the flowery decor of your summer ! To guide your choice, also inspire past successes and failures. To reproduce some and avoid others, it is also a good way to succeed your summer floral decoration this year!
