I've just put a pool in my backyard and am looking to add some colour by adding some hanging baskets. Any suggestions as to what plants would work well in a hanging basket? I live in Ontario, zone 5.

This past Mother's Day, I bought two hanging flower baskets for my mom and hang them right outside her back door. They are in full afternoon sun, but have shade in the morning and evening. The flowers I chose for her are petunia and Gerbera daisy. They seem to very well and the best thing is my mom loves looking at them.

You can see them here, and these were taken before I hung them up!IMG_1491.JPGIMG_1492.JPG

At my school plant sale (we live in zone 4b) we sell hanging baskets with petunias in them so those should work for you too. You can get a lot of different colors too!
