I just bought a pre-planned perennial flower garden for the first time for my new flower bed. I'm out in Southern California, zone 9 near the beach where we get mild winters and summers. It doesn't get hotter than 85 degrees here in the summer (we do not have AC in the house). Most of the flowers are zone 3-9 or zone 3-8. Do you all think they will grow?
