Gus,

The rosemary and Texas sage will if provided excellent drainage. The heath is not as well tested in your area but is rated for you heat and cold zones and therefore worth a try. Lavendar may suffer in rainy conditions but if kept well drained and not overwatered may do okay. The Kent Beauty oregano is going to also require the drainage and may do fine unless a very lengthy wet period brings on rot problems. Otherwise it is a wonderful plant. You might even consider container culture for it. Brillancy rock rose is okay but may suffer a bit in a very long hot summer. Perhaps a little late day shade would be in order for that one. Niagra grape should grow there but production may be lower than in more northern climes. The walking stick should do fine. You might also consider planting a sweet bay (Laurus nobilis) in a large container. It is just a bit too cold tender for you area but is a great plant for a Mediterranean garden.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
