We are building a database and can take questions one at a time, but feel free to submit questions as often as you like.

You are in cold hardiness zone 8b and heat zone 9. Some good annuals for sunny spots include:
Amaranth (Joseph's Coat)
Copper Plant
Gomphrena (bachelor button)
Moss Rose

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
