Hi y'all. I was wondering what your favorite hanging plant is and why you love it.
I put together a 'chandelier' last summer to hang over my garden tub in my bathroom. I used multiple species together and it's filling out nicely. It's looking so great in fact that I would love to make another one. What plant combination would you choose?
No hanging planter here but I do love "trailers"
Mezoo is my fav. In your zone it would be a perennial I guess. I take cuttings to stay all winter in my livingroom.
Here it is in a planter on the deck.
ge1836 ~ I am curious what mezoo is also. From what I can tell in your pic it looks variegated. very pretty :)
Hi podster :) My chandelier is actually an upside down topiary form I got on clearance. LOL I've got Hoya compacta, Hoya brevialata, Tiger fern, Peperomia prostrata, Rhipsalis micrantha, Senecio radicans, Aeschynanthus 'Rasta', Ceropegia woodii, Puya alpestris< I will be moving this out, I had no idea how huge this will get when I put it in.
Google images Mezoo There is a latin name in one of the images .Its a Proven Winner plant. It is verigated and has teeeeny red flowers. In the ground it formes a carpet.
Plant Files has it. Livingston Daisey Doroeanthus, suculent
I always check Google and Plant Files before I order or buy anything. Plant Files has images of plants taken in a garden setting by Daves Gardeners. Its also a more true color than you see in a garden -nursery website
I have a few favorites for hanging planters, mostly because I want to attract hummingbirds. I put red petunias, sometimes a geranium in the middle for height.
I also like Lantana & sometimes I can get it as a trailing one..they are only annuals here.
Last year I had great success in attracting hummingbirds for the first time..so I am sticking to the petunias this year.
Also, "Bleeding Heart" looks really nice in a hanging planter.
