Texture in Container Garden Design

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Texture is particularly important with a monochromatic or harmonious color scheme. Even in color, the texture in this arrangement is apparent and striking. The large, ruffled leaves of the Chinese mustard (Brassica juncea, zones 2 to 11) to the left stand apart from the thin leaves of the purple fountain grass, even though both plants have similar coloring. Finely textured China aster (Callistephus chinensis, zones 2 to 11) rounds out the look. When it comes to texture in container design, opposites attract. For example, large, broad leaves work great with tiny leaves, short with long, flat with ruffles and so on.
