Large potted plants can add decorative accents and vibrance to an otherwise ordinary patio. In many cases, large potted plants are easy to care for and require minimal gardening skill. Many large potted plants are hardy enough to withstand winter weather and may be kept outside, even when temperatures dip below freezing.
Indian hawthorn may grow as high as 3 feet, flowering in late winter and spring. The shrublike plant features glossy green leaves and pink or white blossoms. Indian hawthorn can thrive in either shade or full sunlight and requires moderately moist soil. This plant may be kept outside during winter months.
A fully grown crown-of-thorns plant will reach approximately 1 foot in height and blossom with pink flowers year-round. Thick, thorny stalks and waxy green leaves characterise the crown-of-thorns. These plants do well in bright, constant sunlight with minimal amounts of water. Crown-of-thorns should be brought indoors when temperatures fall below 0 degrees C. The crown-of-thorns plant is not suitable as a potted plant in a household with small children or pets because it leaks a moderately toxic liquid when its stalk is broken.
A snake plant, also known as mother-in-law's tongue, may reach 3 feet in height. Snake plants occasionally produce yellow flowers during summer months, but frequently do not flower at all. They do best with bright, indirect light and only occasional water. Snake plants may be left outdoors during winter months.
Thick, evergreen leaves characterise the 5-foot Zamia palm. Zamia palms do not flower unless they have been exposed to fire. Zamia palms require sandy soil and very little water to thrive. However, they must receive ample sunlight. The Zamia palm may remain outdoors until temperatures drop to -6.67 degrees C. It is not suitable for homes with small children or pets, because it is toxic to both humans and animals if eaten.
