    Everything in this slideshow

    • Culinary Creativity

      Spice up your cooking with this one-stop herb shop. This strawberry jar garden features seven herbs, plus the dainty daisies of erigeron. The range of spices ensures you'll have options for savory dishes like meat and poultry, as well as refreshing desserts and beverages.

    • Showy Sedum

      Sedum is one of the plant world's most intriquing families. The range of colors -- reds, bronzes, and greens -- and leaf types is amazing. And because they are acustomed to growing in cracks and crevices, sedum require relatively little space -- perfect for a container planting.

    • Elegance in Ivy

      Ivy varieties are a natural for container gardens. Many are well suited to shade as well as sun. And their trailing nature means that they form dramatic sweeps of foliage in many shapes and color patterns.

    • Sunny Composition

      Red and pink geraniums and portulaca contrast beautifully with electric blue lobelia in this sun-loving strawberry jar garden. Regular watering and an occassional pinching off of spent blooms is all the maintenance this garden requires.

    • Shady Character

      Brighten a shady spot with this color composition in blue and white. The cool colors of lobelia and browallia shine even more brightly when paired with the white of the impatiens.

    • Aromatic Allure

      Set this fragrant strawberry jar garden on your deck, patio, or front walk and you'll enjoy fresh aromas all summer long. Heliotrope, alyssum, lemon verbena, and other scented favorites star in this garden.
