While it may seem obvious, adding flowers can quickly make a drastic difference in the appearance of your porch. When you spend the time choosing the proper railing or decorative screen panels, why not coordinate the colors of your flowers as well as design proper plant placement. You may have a beautiful porch, equipped with new railing and furniture, but flowers can take your place of relaxation to the next level.

If your porch does not get an adequate amount of sun, ferns are a great solution and also provide additional privacy when displayed in hanging baskets. For full shade to a medium amount of sun, these flowers will provide a touch of color.

  • Caladium
  • New Guindea Impatiens
  • Begonias
