I need container plants for an east-facing, 2nd floor porch that gets intense, full sun for most of the day (8 hrs). I'm interested in palms and/or flowers that have little shedding. I'll be using 12-14 inch containers.

Sounds like you're looking for drought-tolerant plants; cotoneaster, lavender, salvia, lantana, coreopsis, gaillardia, kniphofia, linum, zinnia, marigold, verbena and Mexican sunflower are good choices for your containers. They each bloom and perform beautifully in the hot sunshine. Mexican Fan Palm thrives in hot areas. Be sure to supply plenty of water during the growing season to keep the plants healthy and productive.
