There are so many wonderful annual and perennial flowers you can plant in containers and hanging baskets to add color and interest on your porches and patios. You can also place them in your landscape beds and under trees for quick and easy pops of color.
The most important thing you’ll want to determine is where you want to put the container garden, and then take note of how many hours of direct sunlight that location receives and at what time of day. This will be an important factor in choosing the plants that will have the best success.
See Creating Blooming Container Gardens for Spring/Summer for helpful tips including the best choices of warm season flowers for sunny and shady areas.
