The Q&A Archives: What should I plant

Question: I want to plant something that will help shade the S.E. corner of my house. This side gets extremely warm during the summer season and I want to find something that will endure the heat / cold weather.

Answer: There are several vines you can plant or several different tall growing shrubs. Carolina jessamine, hardenbergia (Australian lilac vine) or bougainvillea will grow up a trellis to help shade the house; cassia or fig are great shrubs. Or you can plant a tree - desert willow, dahlbergia or Baja orchid trees are fast growing. Hope this information helps!
