Create High-Impact Container Gardens With Grasses

By on July 30, 2015

You’ve probably heard the phrase thriller, filler and spiller as it relates to container design. The thriller is considered the main plant, the one with the wow factor; the filler makes up the heart or center of the design; and the spiller adds dramatic flair by draping over and down the sides of the container.

Grasses, or plants with grass-like foliage, have the ability to play all three roles. As with landscape design, successful container design is all about finding the right combination of color, size, form and texture, just on a smaller scale. Including grasses in your arrangement is a great way to add a strappy texture. Here’s a selection of eight gorgeous plants sure to spice up your containers.
