6. Use Pots to Create a Stopping Point

Tall potted plants at the end of this low wall obscure a turn in the path, catching your interest so that you pause before rounding the corner. There’s a wide range of colors here, but there’s a scheme—silver, yellow, orange, and pink—and choosing pots in similar shapes and a single material creates harmony. Tall, variegated ginger catches the 
breeze and adds movement. Flowering tropicals, such as lantana, give strong color all summer, while silver eucalyptus knits the varied colors together.

Or Try This: Make a more subtle statement with just one large decorative pot, and fill it with a cascading ivy or licorice plant.
