Do you have a favorite garden flower that always seems to have its head in the dirt, especially after a heavy rain? This flower can be the perfect candidate for planting in a hanging basket. Many flowers suitable for hanging baskets are drooping, top heavy or creeping – characteristics that can be a challenge in a garden but perfect for decorative display in a container at eye level or higher.
Plants with small or fragrant flowers also benefit from a high perch because it maximizes their proximity to our senses. Some hanging basket flowers even attract butterflies or hummingbirds, giving you a close-up view of wild antics on your porch, deck or patio.
