Hanging Plants That Are Hard To Kill

Egyptian Star Flowers

If you live in an apartment, it’s probably not easy or even possible to cultivate a garden. This is where hanging plants come in. If you have a balcony or patio, hanging plants are a great way to have a little bit of a garden. Some plants are heartier than others so it’s important to consider the climate you live in and how much time you have to devote to your plants. Luckily, there are some plants it’s just really hard to kill.

Petunias- they come in a multitude of bright colors and as long as you water them at least every other day- they are good to go.

Million Bells- these thrive in containers and come in a ton of colors including white. They will stand the test of time, just make sure they have good drainage and plenty of water.

Verbena- If you live in a sunny area, these flowers are for you. They are beautiful and really thrive in containers. They will do just fine with watering alone but if you felt like it, cutting back on fading blooms will take your verbena to the next level.

Egyptian Star Flowers- These are unique and lovely and have no trouble thriving in containers. They will even last through a drought- seriously, it would be hard to kill these flowers.

  1. I am a big fan of Verbena. It’s rich, saturated colors and deep green foliage make it an attention getter! It’s hardiness appeal and ease of care makes it a great plant for the novice. As you mentioned, removing faded blooms help it flourish! Great post for the novice and space problem solving!

  2. Chocolate mint is impossible to kill 🙂 Smells great too! I am not sure if it is a good hanging container flower though…
