6. Incorporate dark foliage. Deepen existing container designs with the addition of one or more cool-tolerant, dark-leaved plants. Here, amethyst-colored ‘Spellbound’ coral bells (Heuchera ‘Spellbound’, zones 4 to 9) and Ruby Glow spurge (Euphorbia amygdaloides ‘Waleuphglo’, zones 6 to 8) add dramatic contrast to the golden orange leaves and red stems of the dwarf vine maple tree (Acer circinatum ‘Little Gem’, zones 6 to 9).

Other plants, such as some perennials and biennials, have the ability to come back in the spring. But because these plants won't have the added insulation of being in the ground, make sure plants left outside are winter hardy to two plant zones colder than the one you live in. For example, I live in USDA zone 6a, so my plants to remain outdoors should be hardy to zone 4. Find your USDA hardiness zone
