    How about among the wave petunias so Bacopa Gulliver too, verbena, geranium...endless really. Cute fountain.

    Beautiful, the way you painted it. You don't want a high plant that will cover the green and yellow Lilly and you don't want anything that will spread and dangle down, again so you don't cover the beUty of the fountain, I suggest if it is in a shady area impatients for shade and if it is in a Sony area impatience for sun. Good luck

    how about succulents

    you could plant herb's

    hanging type plants like Creeping Jenny would be pretty and you could put it in the bottm planter between the lily's, it would be pretty hanging down

    I think some trailing plants would look pretty. Check what grows in your planting Zone. There'll be several that'll work. In my Zone 3 I'd use vinca vine, ivy, sweet potato vine or wave petunias. See what your local gardening center can help you with too.

    Intersperse trailing & bush plants. Love the succulent idea, Michele.

    Succulents in the top, and sides of white object, sorry, I dont recognise what it is, or if gaps are deep enough trailing plants, so they cover that area, and same in planter, would look amazing...good luck and pics would be great after 😃

    Succulents are a great idea...look on Pinterest. I think you use soil and pebbles
