Answer: Here are some suggestions if the soil might sometimes be hot to the touch, but several inches down, it is cool and damp, try Crocidum multicaule (Gold stars); Antennaria spp. (Pussytoes); Penstemon davidsonii (Penstemon); Heuchera cylindrica (Alumroot); Fragaria chiloensis (Beach strawberry); Eriophyllum lanatum (Oregon sunshine); Senecio canus (Woolly groundsel); Solidago spathulata (Spike goldenrod) or Wooly thyme. Low-growing junipers are always good candidates, as are Ajuga (carpet bugle) and Vinca minor. Hope one of these plants is just right for your landscape.
