Container gardening for full sun

Posted by kjbish 10B (My Page) on

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!
