Geraniums are an ideal flower type of window boxes, which can thrive in both full-to-partial sun and full-to-partial shade situations. These flowers are available in different growth habits, upright to trailing with single or double blossoms of white, red, pink, coral, lavender, fuchsia or multicolor and different scent types like rose, peppermint, nutmeg and lemon.

Noteworthy half-hardy annual flowers, Verbenas are also a nice choice for window boxes with both upright and trailing varieties suitable for a location with full to partly sunny. They have small clusters of fragrant flowers at their branch-ends, which continuously bloom through late fall from early spring and hence, attract butterflies.

These are stunning heat tolerant annuals that need only a minimum level of maintenance after being planted and have a maximum height of 12 inches. Wave Petunias add a dynamic impact with hundreds of tiny flowers on their trailing branches and blooms start growing from early spring season until the late summers. Their 5 different series, Wave, Double Wave, Tidal Wave, Easy Wave and Shock Wave contain blooms of lavender, lilac, red, pink, blue, rose and white colors.
