The creativity is unlimited, and so you can make your own spilled flower garden. Here we go!
#1 Terra Cotta Spilling Petunias
This is one of the most simple ways to create a spilling flower pot display. You just partially bury a terra cotta planter in a planting bed and then planting small flowers spreading outwards and getting narrower as the display lengthens. Petunias are a great choice for an inexpensive, yet fragrant display.
#2 Spilled Milk Can
This is a more unique display featuring vintage milk can and a wealth of small white flowers flowing out of the mouth and out into the yard in a serpentine, widening, and narrowing pattern.
#3 Upended Barrel
This is a more country style spilled flower display inside of a well-landscaped flower bed. The use of an old barrel brings plenty of style and atmosphere to this simple, yet pretty display.
#4 Flowing Urn
This is a more complex version, featuring a large overturned clay urn secured to the yard with cobblestone. Out of the mouth of the urn, white, lavender, and violet flowers spray out across the yard. The flowers are arranged in bands, somewhat like ripples. They look great!!!
#5 “Floating” Barrels
This is a seriously impressive version of the spilled planter, with two large barrels suspended from a wire and trails of yellow and red flowers seeming to pour from the mouth. The centerline of purple flowers seems to flow out of the mouth of the middle barrel on the ground. Surely this idea will make your garden more impressive than ever.
#6 Waterfall Urn
These blue-purple flowers create a waterfall effect from the mouth of this decorative, carved urn. The color is absolutely stunning next to the rich redwood chip bed. The wood chips are a perfect addition since they cover the soil and add to the illusion that the flowers are pouring out of the urn.
#7 Rolling Bucket
This lightweight bucket has flowers that spill out of it forming a slightly arched “pool” of flowers, resembling a puddle made by a rolling bucket.
#8 Overflowing Basin
This tabletop display is one of the more unique versions of the display. The bottom dish is filled with small succulents, while the pitcher is filled with a more vine-like variety to simulate pouring water.
#9 Urn with Glass Baubles
If you choose a more simple plant to display, like these vines or ferns, you may choose to dress up the display by using a bold colored ceramic planter or add small glass baubles on stakes.
#10 Dry Stream Bed With Floral River
Here we see another simple display featuring a terra cotta pot and a large, flowing array of small light blue flowers. Absolutely gorgeous!
