Our porch gets sun most of the day. Hubby wants me to do planters for it, what plants will keep most of the summer and look good also. I'm always have trouble with the heat killing plants there as the siding makes it even warmer than it is, any help would be great, thanks Karen.

I had a lot of luck with Coleus and Sage as long as I watered them daily, also had a few Hot Peppers (ornamental Thai Peppers that tasted great )that did well too!

I have a porch that gets full sun also. I planted angelonia white, red verbene and pototoe vine. All these plants are heat tolerant. They have only been planted a week.
I two hanging baskets that I put the supertunias in but they like more water.

Look for tags that say "heat tollerant" or "drout tollerant". I can't think of any off the top of my head but I know I have seen several as I have been looking for my new aquires this year.
