Inspiration

The best window box is the one you can't see. Whatever you planted in there should be so happy that it cascades down the wall to spill onto the sidewalk, threatening to trip passersby. Coleus, sweet potato vine, and caladium: They like a little shade, which makes them the perfect combination to plant beneath a balcony or eave. Water them every day. Image via Stately.
