Beautiful urns are works of art all on their own. To best complement them, use a simple combination of plants that are mounding in shape so trailing stems don’t obscure the view. Neutrals like white, green or deep purple are always beautiful in classic stone, metal and clay urns.
When gathering containers, vary their height so the flowers will be presented at different levels across the collection. Vertical jars add a strong upright element to the grouping and tend to have a modern feel. Plant them with taller, spiky plants to create an especially striking focal point.
