I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Some good flowers to try include dwarf zinnias, Salvia Mystic Spires, New Gold Lantana and other lantanas, Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha), Yellow Bells (Tecoma stans), and Blue Plumbago.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
