Different types of flowers

I'm planning a flower garden, can I grow cosmos, nasturtium, forget-me-not, baby's breath and sweet peas all together? I live in Kentucky(zone 6).

Cosmos, nasturtium, baby's breath, and sweet peas all like the same conditions, but forget-me-not tends to do better in a partly shaded location.

That said, you can find other great sun-loving annuals in our Plant Encyclopedia! Check it out at

Thanks for writing. Good luck!
