Flowers for Hanging Baskets

Do you have a favorite garden flower that always seems to have its head in the dirt, especially after a heavy rain? This flower may be the perfect candidate for a hanging basket. Many flowers suitable for hanging baskets are pendulous, top heavy, or creeping, which makes them look lovely when displayed from a container at eye level or higher.

Some hanging basket flowers even attract butterflies , giving us a close-up view of wildlife antics on our porch or deck.

Begonia , For those who don’t have the right climate to grow fussy fuchsias, begonias can act as a plant double. The half-hardy Begonia , pendulous flowers as fuchsias, but can handle the heat and humidity of Southern summers. Other tuberous begonias that look great in hanging baskets include the Nonstop Mocca series, which are fully double and resemble roses.

Black Eye Susan Vine
Fuchsia
Lantana
Lobelia
Million Bells
Pelargonium
Petunia
Portulaca

Sweet Alyssum : Sitting near a sweet alyssum hanging basket is like being in the presence of a fragrant cloud.
These flowers have a strong honey scent that attracts butterflies and bees.

The appealing trailing habit of sweet Alyssum
can turn shaggy as the season progresses, so don’t be afraid to reinvigorate it with a summer haircut.
