I have a 5x20 foot balcony off of my livingroom. I mention this because the wall is all glass and you see the entire balcony from the main room. I am in northern Calif., the balcony faces west,in direct sun most all day and gets very warm.
I want to grow something in a planter on a trelis. I want something that stays green year round, flowers a good deal of the year, is not messy. I am considering jasmine or plumbargo. Am I on the right track or do you have other suggestions?
Also - I should tell you, I am noooo gardener! The poor thing needs to be hearty for more than one reason.
Am I crazy or is this possible?
