Choosing planters that will match the shape of your plants

Creating  a happy union between  a plant and its planter  takes careful planning. You need to think about the colour, size and shape  of the planter the plant or group of plants  you intend to grow. You
can grow almost any plant in a planter,  but for the best effect,  choose  a shape  of planter that will enhance the form of the plant.
Trees and shrubs need a planter  that stands  at least a third of the mature height  of the plant. Not only does this present  a well-balanced appearance, it also provides stability, particularly  if the tree is on a roof terrace.  Trees and shrubs in planters will have their growth restricted by the mere fact that they  are constrained  within a planter, but it is still desirable  to provide them with a planter wide enough  to allow a healthy  root system  to develop for two or three years. before re-planting may be necessary.
A standard bay or rose tree has its shape  maintained by regular  pruning  and, since there are no lower  branches, these shapes  look better in  a slightly  narrower planter, with the bare compost  covered by

a decorative  mulch. Solid  round  box balls, and mound-shaped plants such as hebes  or small  slow-growing conifers,  can look very effective  planted  in square  planters,  and a collection
of matching  planters in varying sizes creates  a pleasing continuity. This look is most effective  if the plants  they contain  also match. They could  all be varieties  of a single  species, such as different azaleas,  dwarf acers  or fuchsias,  or a collection of herbs such as thymes and sages. Plume-shaped  grasses or slender  bamboos  can look like wisps of smoke  if they

are planted  in vase shaped planters  where the foliage will rustle in the breeze.
Short spiky grasses,  and low-growing  succulents  such as sempervivums  and echeverias also look very effective  in tall angular planters,  where they form a neat crown and can be seen more easily.
Big,  broad-leaved  shapes such as castor oil plants and hardy palms,  and the fountain-shaped  outlines  of cordylines,  need to stand in a position  where there is plenty  of space so that their strong silhouettes  can be fully appreciated. Trailing  ivies  lobelias, petunias  and verbenas all need to be placed  in a raised position so they can
hang  freely and they are perfect for planters hung on a wall, or for hanging  baskets. Combinations  of contrasting  foliage  can also look dramatic:  try feathery ferns  with  broad-leaved hostas,  or spiky agave with tropical palms. These arrangements offer masses of lush green in daylight and if you conceal an up lighter  at the base of the plants,  the leaf shapes will cast some fascinating  shadows  at night.
