Hot pink petunias reflect the ultra-modern feel of this contemporary, metal container, while the pastel pink Laurentia and peachy Verbena add cooler tones. Throw in the rich purple-pink foliage of Heuchera for a touch of drama that pulls the whole colour theme together. These vibrant, summery patio plants look best in a sunny spot.
