What do you suggest as a good plant for hanging in an outdoor planter that can tolerate the extreme sun and heat of Florida in summer? And, yes, they will be in direct sunlight hanging from my home.

I apologize 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 plants for a hanging basket in a hot environment include fan flower (Scaevola), purslane, and moss rose.

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