Calibrachoas
Calibrachoas have bell-shaped flowers that blossom in pink, white, red, blue, purple, or yellow and grow best in warm climates. They need over eight hours of sunlight a day and should be planted in hanging baskets with organic soil that’s at least 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pentas
Pentas are built for hot, humid weather and attract butterflies and hummingbirds with their pink, purple, red, and white flowers. Pentas require well-draining soil and at least six hours of sunlight a day to reach their full three-foot height.
New Guinea Impatiens
New Guinea impatiens are extremely resilient and thrive in locations other flowers normally can’t. They can be grown in shady locations as long as they receive partial sun and are planted in well-draining soil above 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Vincas
Vincas are drought-tolerant, heat-resistant plants with pinwheel-shaped flowers that bloom in pink, red, purple, or white. They require very little watering and grow best with well-draining soil in full sunlight conditions.
Geraniums
Geraniums are able to survive in colder regions and have flowers that are both colorful and fragrant. They require bright sunlight in the morning and shade in the afternoon, and they should be planted with loose organic soil to grow properly.
