I am the greenest (meaning newest) of green thumbs. I want something beautiful, and colourful that is very easy to keep as I may not be able to tend to them every day. (I'm not asking for a lot am I?) [Roll Eyes]
Impatience are the favorite around the complex, something different would be nice.

My 5 year old grandson planted these last summer, and the summer before that when he was 4, etc...
That's how easy they are!

ZINNIAS!

Cindy, your grandson takes after his Granny Cindy! [thumb] Please tell him he did good and I hope he shows us this summer's accomplishments.

If you are talking about annuals, then zinnias are a sure winner [thumb] . Purchasing them from your local nursery or growing them from seed will give you a bountiful crop. They appear small when they are in the nursery tray [scaredy] , but by mid to late summer they are crowding everything around them so don't be shy about spacing them out. Also dont [tongue] put them in the front of your beds if you want to see whats in the back.They make great additions to the cut flower vase and bloom until frost. Another winner that is easy to grow, drought tolerant, and comes in a variety of colors and sizes are marigolds.

GOOD LUCK

If your nursery has moss roses they are easy care and really pretty, we had a mess of them last year and I just loved them. They too are an annual.

Is your patch sunny, shady, dry, moist? That would help narrow down the types of plants that would work. Also if you know your growning zone.
