Answer: Your landscape sounds lovely! Since you love color, why not plant the 2 X 3 foot area with colorful annuals? You can even change the annuals 2-3 times a year to go with the season. For instance, for bright summer color you might plant petunias, gaillardia, and salvia; for fall color remove these and plant chrysanthemums and pansies; for winter color, ornamental cabbage and snapdragons. Your choices are only as limited as your imagination and the best way to start is to become familiar with the annuals section of your favorite local nursery. When new stock arrives you'll know it's time to choose new annuals for the upcoming season. I'd plant the urns, too. My first choice would be some ornamental grasses. They'll grow tall and rustle in the wind, adding still another element to your lovely garden. Best wishes with your landscape!
