Annuals for sowing now???

CREZIERES, France(Zone 8a)

I live in a tiny community in west central France (Crézières, Poitou -Charentes - find us on ). Over the past few years we have, no thanks to me, won the local (county) award for most floriferous village. Now we face a challenge as the judging will be in early September when most of our shrubs and perennials will be way past their best.

The judges don't like common annuals - by the time they get here, they will have seen enough Petunias and Pelargoniums to last a lifetime. We are looking at the possibility of growing striking but *unusual* annuals to fill the gaps.

Suggestions, anyone???
