Container plant ideas for shade
I'm a beginner with flowers and am completely uncreative when coming up with ideas for filling containers. I have 2 large pots (13h x 16d) that I grew herbs in last year but this year decided to put on either side of our front door and fill with flowers. They're not beautiful pots: plastic terra cotta look, but I thought I'd try them out this year and if the experiment works I'd get something fancier for next year.
Anyway, can you-all give me ideas for what would like morning sun and then shade for the rest of the day? I'd like something tall (2-3 ft) then medium, then trailing over the edges. Our house is red brick, so I'd like something bright and contrasting like white, yellow, orange, and blue.
Thanks for your help! (Probably won't check for answers until after Easter, so Happy Easter and I'll talk to you later!)
