Planting Advice

Sarah, the email function has not worked for about a year; just keep checking 'followed threads'.

You could also try Hollyhocks for height, though it is difficult to get the single variety except in almost black; I find the doubles look rather like pom-poms. Cosmos also grows pretty tall also Verbena Bonarienses.

Good luck with it and post some pics later in the season
