From fragrant conifer branches and glossy evergreens to jewel-like winter berries and
decorative baubles, winter container arrangements can be lovely additions to bare winter landscapes. With the holidays around the corner, you may have only enough time to hang a few baubles on a potted plant in your entry or tuck some pine cones around the base. To get you started, here are nine inspiring winter container designs ranging from easy, no-soil-required arrangements to more intricate potted compositions.

1. Berries and baublesAdd a bScreen Shot 2016-12-12 at 4.09.02 PM.pngit of shine with Christmas ornaments tucked in among fat clusters of red winterberries (Ilex verticillata, USDA zones 3 to 9; find your zone) and fragrant conifer clippings. To get a diversity of conifers — fir, pine and spruce — as shown here, ask for clippings at the Christmas tree lot when you’re picking up your tree. Often they’ll let you take home a bundle for free or for a couple of dollars.

2. Wavy branchesBare willow branches in aged terra-cotta pots add interesting texture toScreen Shot 2016-12-12 at 4.11.13 PM.png the crisp white walls of this traditional home. To get the look, pick up about three bundles of curly willow (available from florists) per container and set them into sand, gravel or floral foam placed at the bottom of the pot. Top with pine cones to hide the base, then string the branches with white lights for an inviting evening glow.

3. Festive toScreen Shot 2016-12-12 at 4.11.22 PM.pngp-dressingJust a few seasonal accents around the base of an already potted
dwarf white spruce (Picea glauca ‘Conica’, zones 2 to 8) transform the container from plain to festive. Pine cones will last for ages, while bright red pomegranates and clipped conifer branches will stay looking fresh for a few weeks.

4. Artful simplicityGlossy magnolia leaves paired with a few pale birch branches create a sophisticated composition. Using bronze, green and white, instead of the typical Christmas colors, makes the container composition carry on past New Year’s.

5. Christmas vignetteGussy up existing outdoor containers without repotting by adding holiday-themed accents, such as ornaments, glittering orbs or a plump faux cardinal. Reserve any fragile accent pieces for decorating indoors, or bring pot
ted containers under the eaves, away from rain and snowfall.

Focus on a subtle contrast of textures and shades of green by selecting evergreens with different foliage types, such as cypress, spruce, boxwood and weeping juniper.

Birch “candles.” Evoke the welcoming feeling of candles in the window — without the fire risk — by placing trios of birch branches cut 5 to 12 inches long along your window box against a dark backdrop of magnolia leaves. Thin twigs of golden bamboo placed to radiate outward from the “candles” continue the effect.

Choose plants with pale-streaked foliage, such as ‘Silverdust’ English ivy (Hedera helix ‘Silverdust’, zones 5 to 11) or variegated winter daphne (Daphne odora ‘Aureomarginata’, zones 7 to 9). Or tuck in decorative branches painted white or silver.

9. Classic boxwoodsBoxwoodsare about the easiest container plant around, providing four seasons of medium green foliage. Clipped into cones, boxwoods could be decorated with lights and ornaments as miniature Christmas trees or just left naturally for a welcome hit of green on each side of the front door.
