Some Like it Hot

Posted:

You can save water and time yet still have beautiful flowers. These beauties, once established are drought tolerant.

Lantana is a favorite of butterflies and great for hot dry conditions in the garden or a container.  Fresh Look celosia was selected as a 2004 All America Selection winner for its abundant blooms as well as tolerance to adverse growing conditions.

Butterfly weed is a favorite of the Monarch butterfly and adds beauty to our gardens. I let them wander through the garden establishing themselves where they prefer.

Red Fountain and other ornamental grasses provide texture and motion to annual, perennial and mixed border gardens. 

The low growing Sanvitalia ‘Aztec Gold' and bidens add bright yellow to the edge of the garden. And be sure to try spider cleome. These large plants provide great impact and the spidery flowers add interest
