Petunias are great they take full sun, heat, abuse and come in lots of different colors.

@eenerweiner Thank you, I love them. I was under the impression they were delicate. I will put some in!

daisies LOVE sun! There must be a thousand varieties of daisies, and they grow like weeds. In fact, some people consider them weeds. Here is one of my favorite garden supply companies; I’ve had nothing but great luck with them. I’m not sure of your location, but they are located in Wisconsin.

@NaturalMineralWater Smart Alec!!! I need container flowers!! Can you grow Sunflowers ina container? I pulled the plants I put in last year. I even dug the darn holes in the ground. My neighbor said the mulch I used poisoned them! What a pain in the butt! We lived in a condo growing up and I never planted a thing. I know zilch about flowers! Thank you for your reply!

Getting back to the question, here’s a site for container gardens in TN. There is a list of lovely flowers if you keep scrolling. There are six suggested annuals and six suggested perennials and some useful links if you want to expand to a garden in the soil.

@gailcalled You are a doll!! I had no idea there was such a book! I should have guessed. There is a “dummies” book for everything. I am such a dummy for not thinking about it! Lurve
