Answer: Yes, you can plant any annual in pots. In your case, with<br>so much sun on the porch, you would have to use plants that<br>like a lot of sun. Some sun loving annuals are: Ageratum,<br>Alyssum, Amaranthus, Asters, Begonia (wax), Browallia,<br>Calendula, Carnation, Celosia and many others. I suggest<br>you call your Extension Office at (352) 620-3440. Ask for<br>Circular 569 (Annual Flowers for Florida). <br>Since your spot gets so much sun, consider using fairly large planters--a small pot will dry out quickly. Also, plants in plastic or glazed ceramic pots will retain water longer than those in unglazed terra cotta. Mulching your plants with moss or bark mulch will also help retain water in your sunny spot.
