Hanging planters can add a bit of vibrancy to places where traditional potted flowers may not be ideal and are usually low maintenance. Petunias make for wonderful hanging baskets and they come in many colors including pink, purple, white, blue, red, yellow and orange. Combining colors such as pink and purple is a popular option.
Hanging baskets make flower gardening accessible even to those without a surface to place a flowerpot upon. Hanging baskets bring beauty to the otherwise dull outdoors.
