Brown and white both fall into the category of neutral colors as neither of them appears on the typical color wheel. As a result, they are unlikely to clash with other colors which make them ideal partners in any container combination. However, a container containing brown and white together can still create an eye-catching display in any yard. You may also be surprised by the variety of choices available to assemble such a unique container.
As a reminder one simple container gardening recipe is to combine spillers, fillers, and thrillers together:
Spillers - They are found at the edge of the container and are designed to cascade toward the ground.
Fillers - They tie the container together as they are planted between the spillers and thrillers. They are taller than the spillers but not as tall as the thrillers would be.
Thrillers - They are the star of the show and are attention getters. They often have dramatic flowers or colorful foliage.
Here are some brown and white plants to grow in partial to full sun conditions:
