A hanging basket is not simply a plant in a pot that hangs. They can fill or break up an empty wall, accent a front porch or create a ball of color for eyes to feast on.
A basket does not need to be a single plant but plant combos with color and form diversity.
With space being a premium in many landscapes, hanging baskets offer a perfect solution for garden color.
