Container plants are the ultimate in modular style, infinitely adaptable depending on changing seasons and preferences. These gorgeous shade-loving plants will transform your containers into an oasis for your patio, porch, or doorstep.

For the lushest growth, keep all of these containers evenly moist throughout the growing season. In areas with harder winters, bring the containers indoors or into a garage to keep them protected.
