Answer: If you are planting annual flowers, try marigolds, zinnias, petunias, nasturtiums, and salvia for a hot sunny spot. These will do best in full direct sun all day long or for at least half the day including noontime.
If you are planting perennial flowers, you might try bearded Iris, Achillea, Baptisia, Rudbeckia hirta, Echinacea purpurea, Perovskia atriplicifolia, and spring bulbs such as crocus and daffodils.
When you prepare the soil, loosen it down about a foot and work in organic matter such as compost. After planting, mulch year round with organic mulch to help feed the soil as it breaks down as well as reduce weed growth and reduce watering needs.
Enjoy your garden!
