: I live near Chicago. What are good flowers to plant in my windowboxes which get lots of sun?


Hi Melissa,

Just about anything you like. Go to a good garden center and look at their annuals for sun. Try using at least 3 different types of plants. You should have something that will cascade over the edges, something that will grow up and be a bit bushy and something taller for added interest. The staff will be able to help you.

If you want to research any of the plant suggestions, jot down their names (preferably the botanical name) and research at www.google.com putting the name in quotes like this: "zinnia star white". You can also click on 'Images' at google and get pictures.
