Elevate the design, style, and charm of your backyard with beautiful hanging planters! With plenty of plants to choose from and a variety of styles of planters and hangers, there are endless options. It is a quick and easy way to freshen up any backyard area. Here at Nanz and Kraft Florists, we love all things related to plants and flowers and know the emotional and health benefits they provide, so we’ve compiled some examples of hanging planters so you can get more green in your life.
Hanging Baskets for Full Sun
The best kind of plants to add some color to your backyard where it’s mostly sunny are petunias, bougainvillea, million bells, and portulaca. These are heat-tolerant plants and require at least five hours of full sun. Between the wind and the sun, your backyard hanging planters will need watering up to twice a day. Be sure to monitor their moisture consistently.
Hanging Baskets for the Shade
For spots in the shade, the best types of foliage plants are English ivy, ferns, and Periwinkle. For flowering plants, silver bells, impatiens, fuchsia, and nasturtium work well. You can place these baskets in a bare shady spot in the corner of your backyard, in a shady section of your porch, or hang from a branch of a large shady tree. Wherever you end up hanging, know that you’ve added a charming and elegant pop of color. Hanging baskets are a great way to add a touch of style to any place!
Caring for Outdoor Hanging Baskets
Besides making sure they are adequately watered, the next best thing to do for your hanging baskets is to fertilize them. Other than that, just occasionally do deadheading, pruning, and trimming to keep your plants looking robust and healthy.
