Intense Sun – what does well
I'm planting on a deck right over the Hudson River - full, intense sun and seems like the sun's reflection from the water makes it even more intense. I'm looking for some small accent trees, flowering, of interest that I can pot and put on the decks that will do well. I put a Minerva plant there, a hibiscus variety, and it got fried! I'm new to this, so any suggestions would be very helpful! I'm in NJ.
