If you're feeling "daring" during the months when there isn't any snow on your patio & no freezing weather you could enjoy growing ORCHIDS!!
They're delightful & bloom in the Winter months.
Some varieties are hardier & easier to grow than others, such as Cymbidiums, which come in lovely different colors and thrive with not-too-much-care.
The thing to remember about Orchids is that they do NOT grow in soil ! They are air plants and their roots are covered with bark. Let me know if you'd like to try growing one of those in your patio. They're fun & if you figure out their "secret" they are also easy to grow.
Orchids grow ALL OVER THE WORLD . . . from hot tropical rain forests to frozen Arctic lands.
Whatever you decide to grow - - good luck and have fun with it.
