Top 10 Flowers That Look Stunning In Hanging Baskets
Hanging baskets are my favorite way to bring my porch to life. I usually buy pre-made hanging baskets from my local nursery, 2 reasons, before I researched this article, I had no clue what flowers did well and what flowers did poorly and the second reason was to support local business.
I usually buy 5 – 10 hanging baskets in the spring and then another 5 or so towards the end of the season to make fall easier to deal with. I calculated the costs when buying hanging baskets and I couldn’t believe how much I had been paying. 1 hanging basket costs between 20-60 bucks. I can make a hanging basket for less than 5. So it makes sense to see what flowers give you the best bang for your buck.
without further ado:
Begonias are elegant flowers native to tropical climates. (Begonias do well anywhere in the summer, not just tropical areas) They are quite popular and are appreciated as a houseplant thanks to their brilliant colors
This unique flower boasts an extravagant display of colorful petals. Fuchsia is a great plant for a hanging basket since the flower itself is always inverted.
Lobelias are native to tropical climates, but can be found in moderate climates as well. Their beautiful petals come in a variety of different colors. My favorite are the blue ones (pictured above)
