Colorful Window Box Ideas


I thought I'd share a few colorful annual summer window box and container ideas.  These particular  boxes needed to be showy from a distance so I used bold color combinations, and planted them closely.  They were gorgeous from planting time up until our first frost!  






From a distance

Thank you Red Studio! More blogs to come, I'd better get them written before spring hits here in MN (although I have a while to go, it's currently -5).

Dear Gabby, I think that you are absolutely right about the need for window boxes and containers to make a bold statement. Yes, they do need to stand out from a distance which yours certainly do.

I particularly liked your very pretty arrangement in the container. I wonder what you are thinking about for this year?

Thank you Edith! I absolutely love the Ruby Chrystal grass. As for this year, I'm working on plant selections now, and will provide a list when ready! I'm always looking for inspiration, so if you have any ideas, please let me know.

I agree with you, it is so important to have window boxes and containers "pop."
