I think Europeans have prettier hanging baskets and window boxes than we Americans do. I believe I'll retrieve some of my German heritage (4th generation in USA) and copy some of the European ideas this year.

Bert-
What a gorgeous combination! I think I see coleus, trailing vinca, impatiens and ivy...is that it, or are there other plants in there? Do tell...

your right Jan, thats all
I don't know how you call this silver leaved plant in US, it's helichrysum petiolare (former Gnaphalium) "Silver".

Bert-
I've always been told that "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" (it's a way to rationalize stealing others' ideas, I guess!) At any rate, I'll be flattering you a lot this summer because that is one beautiful combination.

By the way, the helichrysum petiolare's common name is "licorice plant"...when you mentioned it, the proverbial light came on. I've grown it several times in the past, but I just didn't recognize it! Thanks!!! Terry
