Container thriller plants are an excellent choice for those looking to add a bit of excitement and height to their potted arrangements. Typically characterized by their upward growth habit and unique foliage, thriller plants, are the perfect choice for adding drama and visual interest to your space. A popular option for a container thriller plant is grasses. Blue Dart juncus, with its linear, spiky blue-green foliage can add texture to small containers. Red Star cordyline with its sword-like, dark burgundy leaves makes a great thriller plant. Papyrus is also a good choice with its umbellate inflorescence with 100’s of thread-like rays. Using a dwarf canna lily or banana plant will provide height and interest to container plantings. For those looking for a bold statement, upright elephant ears can be a great choice. These plants have large, striking leaves that can add an exotic touch to your containers. When selecting container thriller plants, it's important to keep in mind their care requirements. Be sure to choose plants with similar watering and light needs and consider the size of your container when selecting your plants. With a bit of experimentation and creativity, you can create a stunning potted arrangement that is sure to impress! I am Eddie Smith, and I will see you next time on Southern Gardening.
