Summer planting season is great for Petunia, Zinnia, Moss Rose and one from the spring season is Vinca, these tend to do well all year. Summer time is usually very hot and dry here in St Louis. These plants will do very well in these conditions. All plants require watering throughout the season.
Fall season is best for late season bloomers such as; Geraniums, Mums or Chrysanthemums, Pansies and Verbena. Impatiens will perform well with the increase of fall rain water and cooler temps, however they will only keep blooming until the first frost. Pansies can be leaf in pots or garden areas because they may come back in the following spring.
