Q.Extreme Heat With Annuals

Rhonda01 added on July 13, 2011 | Answered

I live between Chicago and Indianapolis. We have a deck that faces the west. It stays extremely hot in the summer. I can’t seem to find a plant that will survive this heat. I water everyday, but even the “decorative spike” in the middle of the plants looks bad. I currently have some colorful zinnias in the pot that seem to be doing OK. Any suggestions on which plants to buy for this situation next year? Thanks.
