Hi Tiffany, I also share the same frustration with fuschias...cannot grow them here, they just get zapped out so quick by the heat. But this Spring has been unseasonably cool. But I learn to avoid now plants that will just not thrive here.
Pelargoniums, these ones like our weather, when it is cool and dry the blooms and leaves lasts longer, they just start to struggle when our temps hover already in the upper 90F to triple digits when it is just gets very bone dry here. But they bounce back once temps return to cooler levels. Giving them dappled shade in the afternoon helps a lot. In some sense they behave like I am growing alpine succulents. Likes it cooler with some rain, but needs good dry out time. Our summer conditions here when it comes is intensely dry, zero rainfall and very hot so it slows down a bit in its growth at that time.
Right now the Pels are so happy, our conditions are running 20 degrees cooler than usual so there is a good blooming show and overall cooler growing environment. Typically we should be in the 95F to 100F and normally when temps run that high, there are no more blooms, leaves just stay green losing those nice leaf multi-colors.
