|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. Best wishes with your window boxes!
