Are you fond of a particular garden flower that always seems to droop and get muddy after a heavy downpour? Why not consider planting it in a hanging basket instead? Many flowers that are ideal for hanging baskets are those that have a creeping, top-heavy or drooping growth habit, which can be quite challenging to manage in a conventional garden setting. However, when grown in a container that’s positioned at eye level or higher, these characteristics make them perfect for decorative displays.
Moreover, plants with small or fragrant flowers benefit from being placed in a hanging basket as it brings them closer to our senses, allowing us to fully appreciate their beauty and aroma. Additionally, some hanging basket flowers are known to attract hummingbirds or butterflies, providing an opportunity to witness wild antics up close on your porch, deck, or patio.
