I love this variation on the spilled bucket or wheelbarrow of flowers. The tiny impatiens flow from the bucket creating a stream of color. This project is simple enough to accomplish, but it will take tons of impatiens to get the job done.
You don't need to use impatiens, of course, but their mounding growth habit and ability to thrive in low light make them ideal for brightening a shady nook. For a sunny location, try cascading petunias instead.
How it's done
White or multicolored alyssum or blue lobelia would also make an attractive stream of color. They both thrive in full to partial sun and are easy to care for.
Until Next Time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
