  1. Start by watering plants well.
  2. Fill the cooler with enough mulch to raise pots to the same height as the edge of the cooler.
  3. Place mandevillas first.
  4. Add Madagascar periwinkle in front; then tuck in a lobelia on each side.
  5. Hide the original pots with a layer of mulch, which will help retain moisture.

You can also work on other flower varieties if you want. But the combination of the flowers listed above should give you a perfect patriotic container flower centerpiece for your 4th of July celebration. Also, you can explore other options for your container like any recycled pot or repurposed items. You just have to make sure that the color of your container matches the patriotic theme. Make sure you practice safety precautions in making this project. Use the right gardening tools and appropriate materials only.
