Answer: You will need to use plants that tolerate hot afternoon sun. With heavy clay, you may need to create slightly raised planting areas or use only plants that are suited to clay based soil. Some to consider might include barberry, juniper, spirea, forsythia, and burning bush. Look for smaller maturing cultivars that will fit into the space available as they mature. Your local county extension may also have some suggestions. Enjoy your new home!
