This is what i would do( My Opinion)

Now
. Tooth Ache
. Malva Zebrina
. Gaillardia Goblin
. Asclepias Cinderella( Butterfly Weed)

Early-Mid October
. Scabiosa Oxford
. Tomato Chocolate Cherry (Not Frost Hardy)
. Ageratum (Not Frost Hardy Will require shelter)
. Dahlia (Not Frost Hardy Will require shelter)
. Salvia Horminum
. Pyrethrum
. Lobelia

I will be sowing Canary Creeper in Mid October. I do not how it will behave, but it definitely will require frost free sheltered location


Early March
. Morning Glory
. Amaranthus
