Prettier Planter

Martha Stewart Living, June 2006

Instead of the usual sphagnum moss or coconut fiber, line a hanging planter with canna or hosta leaves. Choose large, thick leaves from your garden or florist, and overlap them a few times to create a supportive base. Plant cascading annuals, such as these sun-loving Calibrachoa, and enjoy the sight of them brimming out of a better-looking basket. Though the leaves will eventually brown, they will become obstructed from view as the colorful annuals trail toward the ground.
