Q.Planting A Window Box

Anonymous added on May 19, 2011 | Answered

I have window boxes on almost every window in my house. I also have awnings over almost all of my windows, so most of the boxes are shaded most of the day. I want very bright and colorful flowers in them, but I am not sure what flowers would be tolerant of the shade, as well as look good in a window box. Please help!

I think you would be happy with fuschia, wishbone flowers, alyssum, impatiens, and baby blue eyes. They are rather low growing, love shade and have lovely flowers.
