3 factors to consider

  1. Water: With warm summer temps and minimal rain, its important you are prepared to water the flower packs in your garden more often or select drought-tolerant plants instead.

Planting Pro Tip!

Height, fill and texture are just as important as the color of the flower packs you select. 


The way you arrange your new plants can instantly improve the look and feel of your garden space or container.


A common way to start designing your garden is the “Thriller, Filler, Spiller” method. 


This technique utilizes three different types of plants to create a well-rounded and upscale look.

Thrillers plants add height and drama

Step 1: Thriller Plants

  • Thrillers are plants with heights that can add drama and a vertical element to your garden space or container garden.
  • Thrillers can be flowering plants, foliage plant or even ornamental grasses.
  • Thrillers are commonly planted in the center of the planting area or towards the back.
  • If you will be viewing the container from the front, plant the thriller in the back. 
  • Other examples of thriller plants are: Pennisetum Rubrum, Canna Lily, Caladium, Dracaena, Alocasia, Angelonia, Cordyline, Cosmos, Saliva, Ornamental grass
Filler plants help your garden look full

Step 2: Filler Plants

  • Fillers tend to be more rounded or mounded and help your garden space or container garden look full.
  • Fillers are commonly placed in front of, or around the Thriller plants.
  • Fillers are midsize, mounding or rounded plants that surround and enhance the thriller and fill the space in the planting areas.
  • You can use one filler or opt for two or three different varieties of plants depending on design. 

  • Other examples of filler plants are: Petunia, Calibrachoa, Marigolds, Dahlia, Coleus, Begonias, Lantana, Geraniums, Caladium, Gerbera, Gazanias.
Spillers are trailing plants that hang over the border of your garden

Step 3: Spiller Plants

  • Spillers anchor the overall look of your garden space or container garden.
  • Spillers are trailing plants that hang over the border of a garden bed or container garden.
  • Spillers are placed near the edge.
  • Look for spillers that either echo or contrast shape, color or texture from the other plants in the pot.

Other examples of spiller plants are: Ipomoea, Bacopa, Lobularia, Vinca Vine, Lysimachia, Alyssum, Ivy, Trailing Begonia and Dichondra. Using the Thriller, Filler, Spiller method removes the complication from your garden space or container design and allows you to have fun and use your creativity!
