Heat Loving Garden Plan

I have a winter home about 1 hour south of Cancun, Mexico and am wondering if the plants recommended in your "Heat Loving Garden Plan" (which I downloaded from this site) would survive in the climate there. Thanks in advance for your advice. Lydia

Thanks for writing. I'm not sure what the climate is like in the area where you have your home, but if it receives good moisture during the growing season, the dahlias should be fine. The penstemon may possibly be fine, but I supect you may have trouble with the other varieties mentioned.
