I have never had any problems with beetles on my plants, however, my guess is to try your local nursery...

You are quite right about the selection of annuals here. Lots of potato vine, hanging geraniums, deep purple petunias.....in the fall....i continued to use the potato vine and just added mums and annual purple fountain grasses.

I love the way this designer shows off how her charming windowboxes look...

In fact, this designer included pictures of the same windowbox a with different plant palette, which completely tranformed the look of this home's facade.

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's August Garden Checklist
Prune annuals and roses. Although this is not the time of year for a hard (severe) pruning, many plants enjoy a bit of a haircut during the long, hot summer. Cascading annuals such as petunias often get leggy and stop blooming, so cut them back by half to promote bushier growth and increase flower production. Roses that are known to be repeat bloomers will also appreciate a light pruning to encourage a fall bloom cycle. Remember to fertilize your roses after pruning and water in thoroughly.
