Shade-Loving Combo - Summer Container Gardens We're Obsessing Over - Southernliving. Combine caladiums, creeping Jenny, and white wishbone flower for a whimsical summertime container garden. Here, we used 'Celebration' and 'Florida Sweetheart' caladiums for a vibrant planter with a graceful spill of creeping Jenny from the elevated container.
Best Summer Bulbs for Containers: Canna lilies are tropical plants with big, shiny leaves and brightly-colored, orchid-like flowers that attract hummingbirds. Cannas are excellent container plants. You can give them their own container, or combine them with other annuals or summer bulbs. With their impressive size and decorative foliage, cannas can add a tropical look to patios, decks, entryways, water gardens and pool areas.
