What kind of flowers do you grow?

I am looking to grow some flowers for my garden. Any suggestions?

I have grown zinnia. I have some delphiniums but they of course, have not flowered or bloomed yet. I am considering growing marigold because I have read it is very beneficial to have in the garden. I absolutely love hydrangea and poenies, but I know it is too hot in Hawaii for those. :( Is there anything similar to them I could grow?

Hydrangeas do well here (I'm near Hilo). Since the soil is acidic, you usually only see blue ones.

I've been told that marigolds are considered an invasive species here, but I planted them once and they never came back.

My favorite flowers, though, are cuttings and starts I get from other local gardeners. Ginger, Hibiscus, Heliconia, Cannas, Crinum, daylilies...
