Colors from whites and yellows to pinks and purples, African daisies (Osteospermums) are continuous bloomers that provide flowers from early spring through late fall. This could be ideal for  small patio...

Hi, sarah087! I agree with Northern Miner — if you head to your local garden centre you can see all the annuals and perennials available. They often have annuals in packs of six or eight that can easily be potted in a planter. Be sure to read the plant info card to see how much sun is required for the plant to thrive. Every year I plant petunias in pots and they always flourish without much fussing over them — you don't need much, either. One six-pack would fill one-to-two pots. Hope that helps! —S
