My planters in blooms

I plant both in the garden and in containers. But until recently, I didn't have much success with annuals/perennials in containers. I guess I didn't know how to combine plants so that one might take way off leaving the others way behind.
But I'm very happy with these planters now.

Don't you think they look cheerful?

Absolutely, Ha Xuan!! I like your combinations. What are the tall pink spikes in the last container...bergenia? Love it!!

Combo is difficult for me also. The stronger plant will always dominant the pot later. They only look nice for a while. Btw, I like both your combinations!

Thanks, Lynn and Steph.
Yes, the tall pink spikes in the last container is a species begonia. The blooms last rather long.
