Bouquets in a basket -- with living flowers

There is a gardening revolution going on. People are planting flower baskets with living plants, mixing many types in one container for a full summer of floral beauty.

Plants that grow tall should be surrounded by smaller ones and filled out with others that tumble over the side of a hanging basket. Leaf textures and colors will also be important. There is the silver-white foliage of dusty miller , the feathery threads of the lotus vine floating down from above, the deep greens, or chartreuse, and even the widely varied foliage colors of the coleus.
