Sunny patio

Asked April 10, 2020, 6:45 PM EDT

I have a patio that is about 11.5'x8' and gets ALL the afternoon sun. What are some plants that I could plant that would do well in the sun and extra heat? They would have to be in containers as I'm also on the third story.

Thank you for your question. Here is an article which lists many possibilities: https://www.southernliving.com/garden/sun/container-plants-for-full-sun-and-heat?slide=3353369a-a396-48ea-9905-183ad9e49a35#3353369a-a396-48ea-9905-183ad9e49a35 Be sure to use light, light-colored potting containers (which you can move, and which don’t absorb as much sun’s heat), are well-draining, and filled with potting soil. Ones needing less water are less likely to disturb residents on first and second floors. Good luck!
