Hanging Flower Basket Arrangements

I love hanging flower basket arrangements. In living in a few different areas of the United States, I have observed many people in different places using hanging baskets as a way to decorate their outdoor and indoor space.

In certain areas, huge hanging ferns are so beautiful, and seem to be favored. Other areas use more exotic flowers like the fuchsia flower in baskets. No matter what the flower, I think they look especially great on porches and hanging from decks.

In visiting different nurseries and gardens over the years, they have some of the most beautiful that I have seen. At my own Mom and Dad's house, they love to have hanging plants decorating their outdoor space. He even has set up a little watering system that works wonderfully, and that I have always been so jealous of! I kind of joke there, but keeping hanging baskets watered adequately has often been the main problem I have had, especially in the hottest parts of the summer.

In this hub are some photos of different hanging flower baskets that I have seen. I like different aspects of each one. For any that you are wanting to see a bit more close up, just click on the photo itself to see it larger.

Photo 1 - I love this whole display, but it wouldn't be as nice as it is without the huge purple mums hanging in that basket there. There are others in the distance as well, some very pretty purple flowers of a different kind.

Photo 2 - I love this wooden garden structure, or gazebo. It is quite amazing and has a shady seating area inside as well. The maroon colored mums in this photo are very nice. They make such a nice round mound for a hanging basket I think.

Photo 3 - Some very pretty purple flowers with some extra greenery hanging down. I wish I could say what kind of plant that was that was making the plant grow so long, out of that planter. It would be so beautiful in a gazebo or on a porch setting. I can just imagine, being in a hammock and the breeze kicking up and how nice that would be!

Photo 4 - This is a type of purple geranium plant, I believe. It has a large bushy habit about it, that lends very nicely to a large hanging potted plant.

Photo 5 - The purple and white flowers in the one container seem to be a pansy or kind of viola perhaps. That is what I am recalling. They grow very nicely and I wish my hanging potted plants looked like these ones. Maybe one day.

Photo 6 - Fuchsia flowers are some of my favorite when it comes to hanging plants in shady or semi shady areas. They remind me of my grandmother that just had to have these beautiful flowers one summer after seeing them in a garden. I think they are so beautiful, their colors are exquisite.

Photo 7 - I believe the pink flowers to be begonias here. These also will grow alright in a semi shady area on a porch, etc. I love the more silvery green plant also, that is hanging down so low. These master gardeners at St. Louis Botanical Garden, for example, really know what they are doing.

** My hope, is that upon viewing more and more hanging flowers, that I will learn about new ideas of what best grows in hanging flower baskets. Also, that I might be inspired to seek out knowledge in growing more of plants like these in the future. I imagine, that the larger the basket, the slower it will dry out as well. That would be one way to counteract the problem of roots not getting dry to quickly on the hottest days of summer.

      Hello Nell Rose, thank you for your visit and comment. I agree, they can bring some great color to your home. I also can't wait for summer!

      Hi Debbie, I am like you in that I like to plant and hang up some flowers every year when I can. Thank you for the comment.

      Hello Mary, like you, I sometimes struggle to grow flowers in baskets. I seem to have better luck growing flowers in pots on the ground or in the garden. I think hanging plants get a little less water than all other plants around my house. That would be one explanation for it. Goodnight friend.

      Anglnwu, I would love to see those hanging baskets in Europe! Some people have a real knack for making hanging baskets look simply amazing! I hope to do that too one day.

      Hi Ann, I totally agree that a hanging basket is very welcoming and pleasing to the eye. The watering is what gets me as well. As for my pictures, I use a Nikon D5100, though I am still getting used to it. I enjoy it very much. Thank you for your kind words and so glad you stopped by.

      When I walk up to a house, a hanging basket gives me a feeling that I'm going to like that person. It's a warm and pleasing entrance.

      I have two on my front porch. What I don't like is you have to water them everyday or they dry up quickly.

      Love your photo's. What kind of camera do you use?

      As always, this hub is attractive and interesting.

      Hi, they are beautiful! I always try to hang a couple on my balcony in the summer, as I don't have a garden, so they are great to bring a little bit of color to my house, lovely hub, and roll on summer!
