Answer: What fun for you! Plants will have a difficult time overwintering in containers so you might want to rethink your planting plan. Nandina domestica might fit that size range and will do well as a low maintenance evergreen planting with a somewhat tropical look. Or you can plant annual vines and attach trellises to the planting containers, knowing that they will climb up to hide the equipment during the spring and summer months but will have to be replanted every spring. Scarlet runner beans, (red flowers), hyacinth bean (purple flowers), cardinal flower (orange-red flowers), morningglories or sweet peas are all good choices for the area. Best wishes with your new landscape!
