That will look fantastic when they grow on and bloom. They're not planted up in special soil and baskets in the wild are they🙂

Plants for Poor thin soil on builders rubble

Nasturtiums grow on the poorest ever soil, as do buddlia , they will grow in any crack of the pavement. 

Theres lots more, can't think off hand but others will.

What plant?
