Container gardening for full sun

kjbishMay 5, 2013

Hi everyone,
This is a super specific request so I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help me out, but here goes. I moved recently to LA (10b) from Virginia, and am still adjusting to the very different zone. I live in an apartment so I don't have access to a yard for planting, but I do have a balcony, which gets full sun. So I'm looking for any suggestions of spring-, summer-, and fall-flowering bulbs that grow well in containers in zone 10 and can handle full sun.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

I grew these bulbs successfully in containers in full sun this year.

Watsonia aletroides
Freesia, single white flowers
Scilla peruviana
Tritonia lineata
Narcissus 'tahiti'
Hyachinthnoides - blue
Narcissus 'avalanche'
