Hot weather flowers
I am in Israel, I am on the 12th floor with a North-North-West facing balcony; I get direct strong sun after midday in summer but very little direct sun in winter. It is windy and hot for most of the year.
I would like to make a list of annuals for containers, not climbers. I would like to attract the hummingbirds and bees, and for lots pf colour.
I usually get petunias as they are easy to grow and bloom all year if you keep cutting them back, but I am getting a little bored with them. I would like mixed containers, perhaps 4 or 5 plants in each container. I also have Hibiscus, I grow marigolds around them to try to get rid of aphids. I had nastursims but had to throw them as they get covered with caterpillas, I don't use insect spray.
I have no idea what the hardiness zone would be here.
