Pottery Sometimes the plant is only part of the solution.

The perfect piece of pottery can showcase colorful blooms, add stately elegance and provide a canvas for years of creative combinations.

Outdoor pottery is now 40% OFF during our Summer Sale, so it's a great time to stock up and save big!

To get you started, here are a few tips to keep in mind when selecting your pottery:

Accessorizing with Texture and Shape

By using the variety of shapes and textures that pottery offers, you can tie your plants together with the style of your home quite easily. For example, if you have a tall, columnar plant, accent its height by placing it in a high, narrow pot that sports a simple motif. On the other hand, if you want to add some additional style to an unusual plant, choose one of the smooth, glazed asymmetrical bowls.

Don't Forget Color!

Understanding a little color theory will go a long way in helping you make the perfect selection. By grouping appropriate colors together, you can really give your plants and decor an added punch.

Complimentary colors (those opposite on the color wheel) are all the rage these days. Pairing deep reds and bright greens together is very eye-catching, while other favorites include blue with orange or its variant, purple with orange. As an example, a cluster of bright green plants will look stunning planted in a wine red pot, while darker-leafed varieties will stand out in white pottery.

Not to be outdone, analogous colors (those next to each other on the color wheel) look amazing together too. Plant purple blooms in a blue pot or bright red annuals in an orange pot. Groupings of multiple pots of the same color make an even more beautiful display.
