      I need a flower or plant that only requires(no sun) shade because this will be on my covered front porch

    I love Geraniums and I think they'd be cute in that style wagon. They come in many colors, have a nice scent and a pretty tolerant of neglect (just not too much). They flower better with more sun but do well in mixed lighting conditions.

      I need a plant or flower that will survive just shade no sun for my front porch that it is covered with an awning
  • it is an adorable cart. I am guessing that it is for outside? I would do a combo - I recently watched a video where the best containers have a Thriller (something tall and showy) and Filler (think like babies breath in vases) and a Spiller (like petunias or vines that grow down).

    The first thing I would do is drill some drainage holes in your wagon and then I would get a waterproofing spray to protect the wagon My favorites are petunias that would spill out over the top of the wagon maybe with some sweep potato vine. You could even plant geraniums or Impatients.

      There is drainage built in the bottom and it is water proofed

    Then you are ahead of the game. I am partial to inpatients and petunias because they billow.

    It's so cute! I'd tie a ribbon into a bow on it and display seasonal stuffed critters in it. But hey, this isn't about me! LOL

    So... easy peasy plants for shade only. This would be my choice. I would adjust the number of plants to coincide with wagon size. But these plants won't dwarf the wagon, and provide a beautiful spring/summer look. (I'd probably find a plastic tray/bucket/pan that'd fit inside the wagon & add drainage holes. Easy to change our plants for each season)

    We would all live ve to see the cute wagon all showy when you're done planting!

    A. Wax begonia (Begonia 'Prelude Pink') -- 3
    B. Coleus (Solenstromum 'Dappled Apple') -- 2
    C. Ivy (Hedera helix 'Eva') -- 2
