I'm moving this post from the Technology Forum. 

I  was really looking for something else, but I found this ornamental container link and it's very nice.  I will need it later in the year!  (It is from Texas and I am in PA but at least the general ideas are there and some are plants that grow here.) Containers

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Amy!  I was looking at it too and need to find out what some of those plants are, although I could substitute if they aren't available here.

This link is at the end of the other document (the only one that still works) but I thought I'd put it seperate.  It has nice ideas and seems to use the Proven Winners (PW) plant selections:  PWCombinations

There is a container gardening forum over at gardenweb.com with some breathtaking pictures.  I am addicted to that site too!  So many ideas!

I'll have to check eventually but so often it seems like "containers" mean everyone's doing vegetables.  We have two big planters but DH may put up a fight there (I may have limited input).  I have one basket to do on the porch and possibly another pot. 

I just need a few ideas and it seems like the big planters could look better than just filled with petunias.  He even managed to choose two different kinds of Waves last year (we think) and they didn't look good.  One was also two colors which wasn't right. 

I loved whatever kind of dusty miller they had in one of those links - it's different.
