Get the look container design

'Get the look' patio container - Summer Sizzler

Hot Mediterranean colours create a blaze of colour that works beautifully with an unglazed terracotta pot. Fiery orange Calendula, scarlet Salvia, red and yellow petunias and bright yellow Salpiglossis make a scorching combination. Add the dark foliage of a Dahlia for a dramatic contrast, and a bright splash of peachy white verbena to catch the eye. You can even add a trailing geranium to tumble over the edge of the pot, if there's space. This summer sizzler is perfect for a spot in full sun where it's fiery colours will really get your temperature soaring.
