Hello, Anne,

Here in Los Angeles, the star performers by way of blossoming plants in
our garden in the infernal heat of the SF Valley are our portulacas.
They bloom and bloom and bloom in a riot of color. They require very
little moisture, take full hot (105+) air temps, and the cool damp
nights. We are Sunset Zone 18, which only roughly approximates zone 9b.
Would they do for you? The colors are just plain dazzling...especially
through polarized sunglasses.
