Container gardening can be an excellent way to enjoy the colors and textures of plants without consuming a lot of water. If you thought drought tolerant plants look boring, these beauties will change your mind. Their bright colors and unusual shapes will win you over.
Some of these plants can grow quite large. Consider constructing a container garden that plays with the scale of plants. Use three or five pots (odd numbers of items please the eye more than even numbers) that look like they belong together. Have several small plants in one, and larger plants in the other two.
