A friend has a 10 y/o daughter who would like to grow/buy some plants that will bloom over the winter. I suggested panseys. Would appreciate any other ideas that I can pass on to her since I really don't grow stuff for winter blooms. We are in the panhandle about 30 miles north of Panama City. TIA

You might look at some of the sennas. They bloom late fall. Hard to say as you are in a hard freeze zone. Some of the blooming annuals like impatiens and coleus would work till they freeze.

Late joining in here but don't I remember that the flowering cabbage & kale can take frosts/freezes?
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
