10 Survivor Plants Perfect For Year Round Containers

Survivor Plants Perfect For Year Round Containers

Many perennials and shrubs can live for several years in a container. By taking advantage of this characteristic, you can reduce the amount of time and money you spend on your pots. Your containers can provide you with year-round interest, depending on the plants you choose, and you can lend consistency to your designs. Containers can provide excellent drainage, but the plants depend on you for water and nutrients. Shrubs and larger perennials often stay smaller in a pot, though this depends on the plant, climate, and container. Also, containers don’t insulate a plant’s roots from winter temperatures. Here are some plants that will be perfect in containers all year round:

  1. ‘ Golden Sword’ yucca
  2. ‘Green Mountain’ boxwood
  3. Golden Creeping Jenny
  4. Japanese Pieris
  5. ‘Emerald’ arborvitae
  6. Bergenia
  7. Variegated redtwig dogwood
  8. Heucheras
  9. ‘Blue Star’ Juniper
  10. ‘Fuldaglut’ Sedum.
