Liven up your front porch by accenting with colorful container gardens and hanging baskets. When creating potted plants, use a mixture of colors as well as heights and textures. Here are some perfect plants for springtime pots:

Golden Creeping Jenny – This is a green and yellow leafy plant that is perfect for growing over the edge of a pot. Golden creeping Jenny thrives in partial sun and loves moisture. If kept in full sun, make sure that it receives plenty of water.

Geraniums – Great for adding height and a pop of color to any hanging basket, geraniums are a top pick for warm, sunny spots. Add some ivy around the bottom for a beautiful pot or hanging basket.

Pansies and Violas – If you live in a cooler region of the country, pansies and violas are an excellent choice for spring plants. While these flowers will begin to wilt when the weather becomes hot and humid, they thrive in cooler climates. Plant these in a low, wide bowl or use them as fillers in a container garden with taller plants.

Succulents – If you live in a warm, dry climate, succulents could be the plants for you! A large problem with many hanging baskets is keeping the base moist enough for the plants to survive. Succulents thrive in warm, dry air and require very little moisture, making them an excellent choice.

It is important to remember to wait to plant spring containers when nighttime temperatures are consistently above freezing. If a light frost is in the forecast, cover plants with an old sheet or blanket to protect them or move them indoors. Here are some plants that are ideal for spring weather.

Adding curb appeal helps when you are ready to list your house.
