Answer: Some of the plants that thrive in a southern exposure include Cistus (rockrose), Buddleia davidii (butterfly bush), Callistemon (bottlebrush), Escallonia, Lantana and Lavatera (tree mallow). Each of these shrubs produces seasonal flowers and all are tolerant of dry soils and reflected heat. To accompany the shrubs, add perennials to your planters such as Lavender, Artemesia, Coreopsis, desert marigold, Gallardia, Oenothera (evening primrose) or Salvia. Planting some or all of the above will provide you with colorful and attractive landscape. Enjoy!
