Last year I put up a pergola attached to my deck. It on the west side of my house with southern exposure. Gets very hot. What hanging baskets do you recommend that can tolerate the sun/heat?

Plants in containers will need to watered frequently if they are in hot locations such as you describe. Some heat tolerant plants for hanging baskets include sedums, creeping thyme, verbena, lantana, Black-eyed Susan vine (Thunbergia alata), or bougainvillea (look for the vining types). Sweet potato vine is another good candidate. Hope they grow well for you!
