Answer: There really are not any plants that can tolerate the blasts of hot air from an air conditioner unit. Screening is the best solution for unattractive but necessary features. An easy way to camouflage an air-conditioning unit is to place a trellis such as a lattice-style structure in front of it. About 4-5' away you can plant a bed of colorful flowers ? sweet peas, foxgloves, lilies, Dianthus, pansies, delphiniums, geraniums, roses, and Clematis ? to supply additional screening and provide a lovely distraction. Be sure plants are far enough away from the air-conditioner to prevent damage from hot air.
