The Q&A Archives: Window Boxes

Question: I have window boxes on my east facing double porch. Can you recommend some flowers that would do well? I would like to plant a few different varieties including some cascading-thanks!

Answer: Many plants will do well in a sunny eastern exposure. You might try ageratum, coleus, polka dot plant, dusty miller, geranium, marigold, variegated vinca vine, English ivy (also available with patterned foliage), trailing lobelia, trailing verbena, snapdragons, and fibrous rooted bedding begonias.
