Q.what flowering hanging plants will grow in a screened in patio?

mastaw added on May 8, 2011 | Answered

My patio faces the south and since I screened it, my flowering plants do not bloom. All I get is green foliage. I’ve tried new guinea impatiens and a couple of other common hanging plants with the same results. Thanks.

The screening may have made it too dark for many plants to bloom there. You will want to try shade flowers, although if you tried new guinea impatiens, it may be too dark for shade flowers even.

You can also consider growing colorful foliage plants that like the shade, like caladium or coleus.
