Our favorite plants for fall
Hooray! Fall is almost here! Time to start thinking, planning, scheming and dreaming about getting your front porch or storefront looking festive for the season.
So...what are our favorite thrillers, fillers and spillers for fall planters? Colorful crotons and ornamental grasses are our thrillers of choice. Next comes the fillers, which fill in around the middle of the planter. Our favorite fillers for fall are pansies, cabbage, kale and pumpkins. What? Pumpkins? You bet! Just pop some pie pumpkins or mini-pumpkins right into the pot. So festive! Lastly, comes the spiller, which cascades over the sides of the planter. Our go-to spiller for fall is bright green moneywort (aka creeping jenny).
In the picture above, we used a croton as the thriller. There are lots of fillers going on here – cabbage, small pumpkins and bittersweet stems. Moneywort finishes out the design as the spiller. Doesn’t it look festive for fall?
