Monoculture Hanging Baskets

Many plant species and cultivars are suitable for use alone in hanging baskets and make what are termed monoculture hanging baskets. An attractive monoculture hanging basket species is one that has a prostrate or mounding growth habit, is not too tall, and that will round out or cascade over the rim of the container. Desirable plants for monoculture hanging basket are those that:

  • fill a 10-inch basket in five to twelve weeks with foliage that mounds or cascades so that no media substrate shows
  • have flowers that are distributed evenly across the canopy
  • are not finicky about nutrition and donít have major pest problems so they could be grown with no special cultural needs
