Perennials for hanging baskets

Hallowell, ME

Need suggestions for perennials for hanging baskets. Will have to overwinter inside.

Ozone, AR(Zone 6a)

I like christmas cactus in hanging baskets, begonias, and geraniums, I sometimes add herbs to hang down some and for contrast.like lemon mint,rosemary,thyme and basil, tho basil tends to grow upwards.

Thanks. I'm tending towards ivy geranium but I was trying to get a list of as many plants as possible. I'm getting tired of planting annuals in them. I'm a former Arkansan so I had to look up Ozone! Thanks again. Peace

You can also try compact fushia. I have one in a hanging basket right now and it did much better than the regular one.

That fuschia sounds great too. Can you be more specific on the name?
