Waterwise flowers

Hi everyone,

I am hoping to get some ideas from you all! I am in charge of planting some hanging baskets at my local cricket club. The club’s colours are red and black so ideally flowers that echo those are preferable. However, the club is about 20km out of town so the flowers will only get TLC once, maybe twice a week. The baskets will be on the southern side of the buildings, so shaded for most of the morning but exposed to the sun the rest of the time.

All ideas and suggestions are welcome!

Thanks

Tara

    I really like marigolds and I think you can get a red variety. They require little to no attention and go on blooming for ages.

    hi tara,

    here are a selection of waterwise plants that have shades of red:

    Alstroemeria, pinks (Dianthus plumarius, D. deltoides, D. gratianopolitanus), gazania*, day lilies (Hemerocallis.), for shady positions, red hot pokers, Pelargonium peltatum
