The 8 best outdoor hanging plants

Hanging plants are usually more or less rustic species, which demand little water.

These are some of the most used.

1. Senecio rowleyanus (rosary plant)

Senecio rowleyanus. Viveros González. Marbella.

2. Pelargonium peltatum (trailling geranium)

Gitanilla. Geranio de colgar. Pelargoniu peltatum. Viveros González. Marbella

3. - Impatiens walleriana

Impatiens walleriana. Alegria de la casa. Viveros González. Marbella.

4. Nephrolepsis (Fern)

Nephrolepsis. Helecho. Viveros González. Marbella

  • Fern is a classic of hanging baskets.
  • Its sword-shaped leaves tend to bow when they grow, so they will form very attractive waterfalls.
  • You need to be semi-shaded, but it can withstand the cold and when accostumed it can even withstand the direct sun.

5. Glicinia (Wisteria)

Wisteria. Glicinia. Viveros González. Marbella.

  • If the trailing geranium is the queen of the balconies, it is the glycinia who takes the crown in the pergolas.
  • The most attractive thing about this plant is its flowers, which fall into delicate white clusters and give off a soft aroma when the heat reaches.
  • It is a climbing plant, so we must give it a strong support to help it grow.

6. Surfinia

  • An annual or perennial leaf that can be hung in full sun without worrying.
  • In summer we should water it often, but be careful not to wet flowers (which could get burnt together with the direct sun or make it more sensitive to pests).
  • It is recommended to remove wilted flowers often.
  • Its main enemies are aphids and the red spider.

7. Hedera (Ivy)

Hedera helix. Hiedra. Viveros González. Marbella.

  • A suitable plant if you live in a garden with Mediterranean climate, and that you will see often covering the coastal houses.
  • If we provide it with the suitable support, the branches of the ivy will fall down in very elegant bunches.
  • Flowers are insignificant, for what its main attractive resides in its leaves themselves.

8. Verbena officinalis (Verbena)

Verbena hybrida blanca. Viveros González. Marbella

  • A plant with flowers that looks beautiful in hanging baskets.
  • Drought resistant when is established, what means that an excess of irrigation can easily cause fungus to appear.
  • It is a short life plant, -sometimes even a couple of years- but the beauty of its flowers makes it worthwhile.
