Hello, What type of annuals would you suggest to plant in a 3 tier planter with 24, 12 and 7 inch diameters. The planter is located where it would receive morning sun and is placed by the front door. Thank you, Lisa Knepper
There are numerous colorful and interesting annuals that will thrive in morning sun and afternoon shade. Consider mixing plants with different blooms, growth habit (upright, mounding, trailing), and leaf texture and color. Combinations in your 3-tier planter could include Caladiums (for height) and Trailing Coleus (leaf color and texture), Non-stop Begonias (mounding) and Bacopa (trailing), New Guinea Impatiens (mounding, leaf color), Red Iresine (trailing) and Torenia (trailing). Other options include the Diamond Frost Euphorbia (mounding ), Streptocarpella (mounding, leaf texture), Purple Queen Setcresea (trailing,leaf color), Impatiens (mounding), Hedera Ivy (trailing, texture) and Vinca Vine (trailing, leaf color).
If your 3-tier planter has an outer frame, you could consider training Ivy or Vinca Vine to climb up the frame like a topiary. Have fun and good luck with your planter.
