These are annual spring planters in zone 5b. We work in Illinois, so I do not know if they would be appropriate for Florida.

1. Celebration of spring. Welcome the season with a sunny arrangement of mixed bulbs of various heights and delicate pansies tucked to fill in around the base. Here, a pair of deep urns planted with medium-purple tulips, yellow daffodils, pink ranunculuses, grape hyacinths (Muscari sp.), pansies and variegated English ivy makes a glorious entry arrangement. It can be tricky to get bulbs planted in combination to bloom at the same time. To re-create this look, choose a bag of early, midseason or late-blooming bulbs packaged together and plant them in a container according to the instructions. If you missed planting bulbs last fall, pick up potted bulbs from your local nursery and plant them together in a container. Look for ones that are just beginning to bud for a coordinated bloom time.Water requirement: Moderate to highLight requirement: Full sun to partial shade
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Plant Easygoing Grape Hyacinth for Reliable Repeat Blooms
Grape hyacinths fit nicely in a container filled with spring bulbs and annuals. Growing in containers. Grape hyacinths can be grown in almost any container with good drainage. Set the bulbs 3 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart. Provide the same growing conditions as for bulbs in the ground. After blooming, wait until the foliage turns yellow to cut it back. Unless the bulbs become waterlogged, they should rebloom the following year.You can also force grape hyacinths for indoor winter blooms, much like other spring bulbs, such as paperwhites and hyacinths.MoreFall Planting Guide: Plant Bulbs Now for Spring and Summer BloomsWhy Fall Is the Best Time for Planting
