    What is your lighting?Do you want annuals?
  • How about geraniums? They are pretty hardy and will live through almost anything.

    You really need to water a lot with pots in the summer sun. It is doable. I suggest you mix coconut bark (holds water better than peat moss) with your plant mix. My plant are doing well in N. CA with full south sun.

    I have found if I set my pots up on a couple of bricks with a small space between them air circulates under the pots keeping my pots cooler and plants happier. We get temperatures in the 100's in the summer and my plants survive as long as I keep them well watered.
