5 best colors for the balcony

We have collected beautiful plants that will not require much care and will bloom all summer.

Bright, pleasing to the eye flowers are good not only outside the city: they are beautiful on the city balcony. Easily and simply they will help turn it into a blooming oasis. Among the huge variety, we have chosen five species that have proven themselves as plants for the balcony. They will feel great in balcony boxes, in pots, on suspensions — in any compositions on the balcony.

They need a little: to make drainage in the lower part of the balcony box (pot), to water, but not to fill. If you feed a couple of times over the summer with fertilizer for flowers — fine: they will delight you with a generous flowering.

1. Petunia

No wonder these flowers are widely used for landscaping streets: they bloom in a lush «ball», and a variety of shades from white and pale pink to blue and purple allows you to create a variety of mood compositions. There are also magnificent striped varieties, and with a contrasting border, and with delicate veins of a darker color — the choice is huge. In order for the petunia to continue to bloom luxuriantly, it is only necessary to remove the faded shoots.

2. Nasturtium

Nasturtium is number two in our rating. Put a support on the balcony or pull a string, and nasturtium will wrap them. Flowering nasturtium can cover part of the wall on the loggia or create a «fence» of the side of the balcony. Round leaves and flowers of intricate shape will look good both in balcony boxes and in hanging ones. In general, nasturtium can be decorated with a message balcony: a variety of varieties allows it. Although there are not as many of them as petunias, however, there is a choice — from flaming scarlet and orange to gently creamy.
