Bacopa is usually grown outdoors as an annual container plant. They will need full to partial sun and ample water when the summer turns hot.

The lavender "Hidcote" could be grown in the garden as a perennial in your area, it needs full sun and a well drained soil for best results. In a container it would need full sun and a free draining soil mix.

Regal geraniums can be grown as container plants and saved from year to year if brought indoors as houseplants for the winter. These geraniums bloom in the spring until the weather turns hot, then they stop blooming. Provide with morning sun while outdoors (usually a cooler location than all day sun would be) and a bright windowsill indoors. Allow the soil to begin to dry between waterings. Fertilize lightly in spring and summer with a water soluble fertilizer per the label directions, using the weaker strength.
