container plants for extreme heat
I have very large 3rd story patio off my kitchen which faces east and can get up to 100+ degrees in the sun in the summer. Currently I only have a pygmy date palm out there, about 7 ft. tall. I do have 2 huge umbrellas there to cut the intense heat a bit.
I'm looking to add more container plants out there including a climber as I have 2 walls of lattice also. First I'm thinking of bouganvillas to hang over the wall, but I'm wondering what else will survive the intense heat and sun out there in the summer. Can anyone give me suggestions as to what wouldn't just fry out there ? I also love color and attracting hummers.
