Hummingbird Garden kit

I just bought a hummingbird garden kit. The seeds included are red cypress vine, cosmos, four o clock, and nasturtium. I am planning on planting these in a corner in my garden that get some but limited sun. How well will these grow? I am in zone 6. Also, is there anything special i should know about caring for them. thanks!

Well all of the plants you list require full sun, at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight per day. If they don't get this, they won't bloom very well or thrive. All of them are quite easy plants. You'll need a trellis for the cypress vine, but otherwise, these are all heat and sun loving easy plants.
