If you are looking for a center tallish plant for your basket, Pelargoniums and fuchsias are best to serve the purpose. They both are sturdy enough to bear the strong winds and rain as hanging baskets are mostly exposed to these elements. There are many other tall annuals but they are not that sturdy and there are chances that they flop over the basket.
John Bartram, the early American explorer, botanist, and writer founded the first United States Botanical Garden, in 1728. In the early American colonies, William Bartram in his book, Travels, noted that General Oglethorpe was sent to the colony of Georgia in 1733 to investigate the possibility of establishing various temperate and subtropical plants which might prove valuable for Georgia farms and orchards. William Bartram noted further in his book, Travels, that he his father, John Bartram, were sent to explore the Southern colonies that included East Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, and Alabama to take an inventory of plants growing there after the Spanish were expelled by the English. Bartram reported that just outside of Mobile, Alabama, it grows here five or six feet high, rambling like Brier vines over the fences and shrubs.
*Compost or humus, indirectly strengthens the plant's resistance to disease by creating an ecological balance in the soil between a multitude of organisms, ranging from bacteria, fungi and small animals. The greater the variety of life in a habitat, the better the chance of keeping in check the population levels of pathogenic organisms.
The Dracaena is another plant which is visually attractive because it is quite bushy and also requires low levels of light.
