This is not normal! It would help to know where you are located and to have pictures. These are very sensitive to cool temperatures.

Q. planting a parking strip in San Jose in full sun

I have been recommended petite butterfly sweet pea shrubs and company them with star jasmine.
I would like to know about plant pests and flowering seasons or what plants would be most trouble free that you would recommend

Those are good choices for your area. As for plant pests... tey carry the same risks for the same pests as most plants. I will include an article for both plants, and a link to ways to craft your own pest controls that will help you here.

Check for signs of pests, they may be very small. You describe symptoms of a possible infestation.
Neem Oil can be used on your plant.
