The Visitor Center entrance displays many large box planters filled with bright Canna and towering Cyperus. The Cyperus wobbles in the breeze this movement adds interest.

At the rim of the Peony Garden a trio of terrra cottas filled with Geraniums sits at the entrance to the garden.

Nothing says garden like Geraniums planted in terra cotta this is a simple and cute combination.

The Rose Arbor Garden is loaded with colorful summer containers. At the time of my visit the roses were not in bloom. Several colonies of containers are arranged throughout this garden the colorful foliage and flowers redirect interest from the roses to the containers.

When it comes to containers more is better. The folks at Longwood Gardens like more. Love their container attitude! You will see container inspiration throughout the gardens.
