The Q&A Archives: What Plants Do Well In Foggy Los Osos

Question: I am doing a sunny deck of containers in Los Osos, CA where it is foggy in the summer. My client is wanting showy plants, not annuals. Please advise.
Thank You!

Answer: You'll have good performance from Cistus (rockrose), Coprosma, Cytisus (broom) Escallonia, Hebe, Lantana, Rosa rugosa, Westringia fruticosa (coast rosemary), Agapanthus (lily-of-the-Nile), Chrysanthemum frutescens (Marguerite), Dianthus, Santolina and Phormium on a sunny deck in a foggy summer climate. Enjoy!
