Dress Up Your Front Door with These Container Flowers

By DiCharry Homes - 4-20-2023

From patios with loads of potential to porches worth sipping coffee on, Dicharry strives to give our homeowners plenty of space indoors and out. If you want to dress up these outdoor spaces this Spring, arranging a few potted plants around your front or back door can help you do that. Here are some flowers that do well in containers and make for a beautiful addition to your welcome mat.


First up are petunias! Petunias are a popular choice for container gardening because they produce an abundance of blooms in a variety of colors. They are also heat-tolerant and thrive in full sun. Petunias are perfect for hanging baskets or containers. Water regularly and fertilize monthly to keep these flowers blooming.


Geraniums are another popular choice for container gardening because of their long-lasting blooms and easy maintenance. They are sun-loving plants and require well-draining soil and regular watering. Geraniums come in a variety of colors and are perfect for adding a pop of color to your space.


Marigolds are easy to grow, low maintenance, and ideal for container gardening. They are heat and drought tolerant and thrive in full sun. Marigolds come in a variety of colors and sizes, making them a versatile choice for any container garden. They also keep unwanted pests far and away from any other flowers you have near them. Beautiful and hard working!


Zinnias are another great selection. They are popular for a reason because they produce gorgeous blooms with little care. And for those spots on your patio where there is no shade, these flowers thrive!


Next shoutout are dahlias. Dahlias are beautiful and showy flowers that stand out dramatically in a container. They come in a variety of colors and shapes, and they thrive in full sun. Just be sure to water them regularly if they are in full sun to keep these sophisticated flowers happy.


And lastly, we have lantanas. Lantanas are heat and drought-tolerant plants that produce clusters of flowers in a variety of colors, and love full sun. If you want a bit more of a tropical vibe for your outdoor space, adding a couple planters of lantanas can accomplish just that.

As you can see, we are spoiled for choice when it comes to beautiful and tough flowers. These plants are not only beautiful but also low maintenance and perfect for adding color and life to your front or back door!
