Some plants for hot sun might include flowering annual vinca, portulaca, verbena, pentas, and nasturtiums as well as the small black eyes Susan vine (Thunbergia) or perhaps the decorative potato and sweet potato vines. Herbs can also make attractive foliage plants, so you might consider the trailing forms of thyme or fragrant herbs such as curry plant for a less tradtional touch. Enjoy!
