I have a few 18" diameter containers that my veggies will be vacating soon and want to fill them with some fall & winter flowering plants for a little colour on my deck. I'm in a suburb of Vancouver (zone 8a, I believe) and have had pansies overwinter before. Since I'm not really a fan of pansies, I'm looking for something different this year if it will survive. It is south exposure. Any suggestions? Thanks.
