I would like to plant either perennials or annuals to add color to a retaining wall in the front of my home that gets a lot of light, any suggestions as to which type of either that will add some curb appeal to my home. Thanks

Generally a sunny retaining wall area will be hot as well, due to reflected heat. For annuals with all season color you might consider marigolds, petunias, callibrachoa, angelonia, dusty miller, or salvia. For perennials you might try assorted sedums, purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), black eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), or creeping thyme. I hope this gives you some ideas.
