  - Filler Plants: Medium size plants that "fill" in container garden
  - Spiller Plants: Plants that trail over the side of the pot

How Color Influences Container Gardens & Gardens
Use the color wheel as a guide to picking colors that work well together
Color Harmony
  - Analogous Colors
    -- Three colors which are side by side on the color wheel
    -- Example: green, yellow-green, and yellow
  - Complimentary Colors
    -- Any two colors that are directly opposite each other on the color wheel
          - Yellow-green and purple
          - Red and green
  Color Echoing/Repetition
  - Once you have your color theme echo those colors throughout the container garden
  - If you have a plant you love use it to create the rest of the container
