except Sunflower, i think there is no issue. Secondly Karachi's climate differs. Their spring will be around Feb with not much cold in between. I think they will grow just fine

December is too late.
Cosmos is one flower that can be sown almost round the year in our climate. I have sown cosmos already for winter flowering.
