Answer: In a hot sunny location such as you are describing you will have better results using sun loving plants and a larger container such as a half barrel planter. You might try marigolds, zinnias, dwarf sunflowers, blue salvia "Victoria", the ornamental sweet potato vines, or some herbs such as basil (tastes good on pizza and spaghetti) or lemon verbena (good in lemonade). You might even try a shorter variety of gladiolus, a cherry tomato plant or two and perhaps a few bush beans for fresh eating. Keep in mind you can mix and match in one container. Experiment a little and have fun!
