The deep green and burgundy foliage of Fuchsia ‘Thalia’ will be even more startling later in summer.
Petunias and violas are surrounded by a cascading curtain of variegated ground ivy and silver-leaved senecio.
An antique basket is not essential for this scheme, but the bowl shape makes an interesting variation.
The chandelier shape is a result of combining the spreading bidens with upright lantanas and marigolds.
These are planted together to make a hanging basket that will flower for many weeks in early spring.
A basket of herbs is both decorative and useful, especially when hung near the kitchen door or window.
