The Q&A Archives: Window Boxes In Strong Sun

Question: What flowers and herbs would be best to use for three or four flowers boxes facing south in strong sunlight?

Answer: Annuals that take heat and sun include sunflowers, tithonia, zinnia, coreposis, cosmos, gaillardia, black-eyed Susan, coneflower, lisianthus, petunia, salvia, geranium, and vinca. Most herbs will take sun as they are native to the Mediterranean region, but they must have good drainage. Oregano, thyme, lavender, basil, and sage are some options.
