This moss-lined hanging basket is planted with tuberous begonia, heliotrope 'Mini-Marine,' streptocarpus, coleus 'Golden Wizard,' and lobelia 'Blue Cascade,' with some trailing ivy thrown in for good measure. Plantings like this one are best with a foliage plant or two to help carry the combination through hot periods, when flowering plants may take a rest.
* * * Pastel Begonia - Begonias prefer to grow in the shade or part shade. They will begin to bloom in early summer and last until the first frost in the fall. At that time, they can be lifted and stored for the winter. This hanging basket can also be brought indoors for winter protection. A colorful pastel mix of pendulous Double Begonias. Place these on a deck, porch or under an overhang. Begonias bloom like crazy all summer and fall. Zones 7-9 (lift and store bulbs in the North).
