Gardeners turn to the sweet potato vine for its ability to power through just about anything while bringing interesting shapes, sizes, and colors to a pot or plot. 'Sweet Caroline Red' has muted red foliage. The trailing plant adds rustic red hues to this hanging basket.
Rudbeckia 'Toto Gold' is an annual dwarf type that bears with golden blooms that get darker gold toward the chocolate brown center. It grows to 15 inches tall. The height of this plant makes the black-eyed Susan the center of the display.
'Medusa' ornamental pepper plants have long and narrow fruit that add color and texture to any container garden. The plant often shows red, yellow, orange, and ivory peppers all at once. A single plant makes an appearance in this arrangement and matches the warm-hued scheme of the design.
These pleated trumpet flowers on 'Can Can Apricot' calibrachoa resemble small petunias. Their unique color pattern includes a warm shade of apricot with deep red in the center. The small flowers add texture and color to this hanging basket.
