Answer: Sounds like you need to put some sturdy sun-loving plants in your window boxes. Why not try Stonecrop (especially Autumn Gold), Delosperma (Ice Plant), Asters (African Daisies would thrive there!), Coreopsis, Marigold, Linum (Flax), or Zinnias. Each of these plants are reasonable drought-tolerant, and love all-day sunshine.
