I decided to interplant flowers with my tomatoes this year, partly for pollinators but mostly just for me. I started these in milk jugs using the winter sowing method and they came up beautifully. I had gorgeous blooms until our summer heat made them struggle, but with cooler fall temps they've perked back up after some trimming, and even spread a little, which is fine by me. They're definitely best in spring and fall/winter here in central Texas. They seem to repel pests better than the marigolds I used to plant so they're keepers.
