Your hanging basket is absolutely gorgeous. The plectranthus is definitely a great filler plant and the foliage makes a nice contrast to your blooming plants.

Oh my gosh, your basket is just gorgeous! Beautiful foliage.


It's a luscious plant and the planter is very striking! Have you seen Plectranthus Mona Lavender! You might like her! Pretty purple on the underside of the velvet leaves! Nice salvia like purple flowers!


I adore the plants with such wonderful foliage. Beautiful. The hanging basket? WOW. If my baskets had looked like that Cheesehead would have never given up on them. I guess it's for the best now, you've got to love fillers.

What a Healthy looking group of flowers!! I tried something (Helichrysum petiolare "Lemon Licorice" for the second year. It was pitiful!) I will look for some of these plants next year! :-)


Wow, thank you everyone especially for the comments on my hanging basket. I did not expect that. I usually struggle with hanging baskets. I do much, much better with containers of any other kind.

Also, Gail, I will check out the plectranthus mona lavendar ~ it sounds right up my alley!

and I've grown that helichrysum with minimal success too Shady Gardener. When that happens, I think "time to move on." Good luck with plectranthus next year. They are easy to grow but difficult to find (at least in my area)
