I always plant tall ornamental grass, variegated (two-tone) Vinca and geraniums in one pot so that you get height, a vine that travels and a pop of color!
Don’t forget to feed your potted plants with Miracle Grow once a week. It does help a ton!
Also, be sure to get a water absorbing material like Aqua Feed to add to your soil. and hot summer months, that extra water will save you and your plants 🙂
