Flowers Outside in Hot Sun
The front of our house is quite hot. We want something out there that is pretty.
Thanks. You are in zone 6. My first thought as a plant choice would be any of the dianthus family. We call them pinks. The colors range from white to burgundy, with pink and purples of all hues included. The plants are perennial, get about 10'' tall and spread appx. 14-16''. There are many varieties from which to choose.
Another choice might be daylilies. These folks have a good site to find your height and color: Try to get one that is a "repeat bloomer: http://www.oakesdaylilies.com/categories/daylilies/bloom_heights/dwarf
If you only get morning sun, Hosta should work. There are all heights and leaf colors.
While many perennials have a limited bloom period, you can always add a few annuals for summer long color. Petunias, New Guinea Impatiens, begonias, salvia, ...many other choices.
can be Annuals or perennials, perennials would probably
be the nicest.

- 12" to 18" tall

How many hours of sun a day? How tall, short, wide, do you want the plants to be? What color foliage and blooms? What type soil? Is it irrigated? Do you want annuals or perennials, succulents, shrubs? What zone are you in?
