All plants can be grown as annuals in any zones. Plants in hotter temps than they prefer (plants above your zone) will do best with some afternoon shade. The excess heat can make them struggle/wilt a bit in the afternoon without providing them shade during the hottest time of day.
All bulbs, roots or plants can be stored indoor through winter to replant in spring as long as they are perennials. Please research proper storing methods.
