I have a very cottage look to my house, what are the best flowers to put in my window boxes...they receive partial to most sun. I have used wave patunas alot because I like them draping over however haven't had much luck with the little bigs and those.

Here are some suggestions for your window boxes:
African Daisy (Dimorphotheca)
Annual Vinca (Cataranthus roseus)
Calliopsis (Coreopsis tinctoria)
Cosmos (Cosmos species)
Creeping Zinnia (Sanvitalia procumbens)
Dusty Miller (Senecio cineraria)
Gaillardia (Gaillardia pulchella)
Globe Amaranth (Gomphrena globosa)
Gloriosa Daisy (Rudbeckia hirta)
Gold Medallion (Melampoddium paludosum)
Moss Rose (Portulaca grandiflora)
Snow-on-the-Mountain (Euphorbia marginata)
Spider Flower (Cleome hasslerana)
Verbena (Verbena species)
Zinnia (Zinnia species)

All will tolerate growing in hot, dry places which is usually the condition in window boxes that get afternoon sunshine.

Bet wishes with your window boxes!
