I am kind of addicted to hanging baskets. I have ones in my house that hold spilling houseplants, and ones on my porch to hold my favorite flowers. This year, when I put together my hanging baskets for my front porch, I made the point of choosing flowers that would spill or cascade over the sides of the baskets. And honestly, I love the look of it. Keep reading to see what the best flowers for hanging baskets are!

Tidal Wave Petunia
These beauties can grow, and grow, and grow! Because they grow so fast, I recommend planting them in hanging containers. This award willing flower is great for covering up anything unsightly in your yard, and it smells beautiful.
If you thought that the Petunias grew fast, you haven’t seen a Calibrachoa plant in action! This plant can grow up to 12-14 inches in a single season! Place yours in a hanging container in an area of full sun. Soil should be kept moist, and foliage should be kept dry when watering. These are a great addition to any hanging basket.
Sweet Potato Vine
Sweet Potato Vine is one of the easiest plants to grow on this list and is one of the most colorful. Though this variety doesn’t produce any edible treats, it does give off bright foliage and spreads speedy quick. Keep containers in partial sun with well-draining soil.
