annuals for patio deck pots in full sun
Looking for either annunals that flower all summer or annual plants that will strive full sun (6+ hours) and tolerate dry soil most of time in large wooden barrels. I've planted geraniums and pinched dead ones but they tend to take a long time to grow back. Planted petunias and pinched dead ones but they keep growing and showing new flowers at tip and show mostly the green leaves on the bottom. Planted licorice plant but it's rather boring. Planted vinca ivy and grows too long that it crawls on the ground. I love putting my spikey long leave plant in the center for a fan fullness effect but can never find the right plants to grow underneath. What can I grow? Your forums recommend: marigolds, wax begonias, celosia, saliva, alyssum. Anything else??? Appreciate any advice.
