Those that are fortunate enough to have exterior window ledges can use them to hold containers of flowers and foliage. Not only will they dress up the facade of the house by adding color and natural beauty, but they will also enhance the interior view. Choose your annuals and perennials carefully to create an impressive arrangement. Use these ideas for planting flowers in containers on window ledges, and add splashes of color and matchless beauty to the interior as well as the exterior of your home.
Add Clay Pots of Gorgeous Ivy Geraniums
Not all geraniums grow in an upright position. On the contrary, some of the most beautiful varieties are ideal for planting in containers on window ledges. As the first photo shows, ivy geraniums are lovely when displayed in clay pots on window ledges. They will fill the space with beautiful green foliage and colorful blooms that will eventually trail down the siding of the home.
Fill Wooden Window Boxes with Coral Bells, Blue Lobelia and More
Wooden window boxes are also ideal for window ledges. Fill them with coral bells, gorgeous blue lobelia, sweet alyssum and trailing vines. Create an array of blooms and vines that both trail and fill the containers. As the second photo shows, the color and box style does not necessarily matter. They will become completely hidden by the flowers and foliage.
Set Up White Picket Fence Window Boxes with Petunias and Vines
Consider filling your window ledges with white picket fence window boxes. They are exceptionally cute, especially when the property is surrounded by the same type of fencing. It will add quaint cottage style, especially when the containers are filled with gorgeous cascading flowers and vines. Plant variegated vinca vines in front, and fill in the rest with petunias. They will fill the containers with amazing color and extraordinary beauty, style and charm.
Fill Wire Window Boxes with Shredded Coconut Fiber Liners
Clay pots and wooden window boxes are not the only containers that look amazing on ledges. Consider attaching the wire variety for something unique and highly ornamental. Add shredded coconut fiber liners, and fill them with a mixture of organic soil and mulch. Using the third photo as a guide, add sweet potato vines, lemon gem marigolds, mealy blue sage, red star flowers and deep green vines of your choice. Plant the vines around the edges, and fill the center with the lowest growing flowers. Place taller varieties in the back to create a fully visible display. No matter the containers that you choose, the wide variety of blooms and foliage on your ledges will look phenomenal.
