The Q&A Archives: hot,hot weather plants

Question: I live in Kingman, AZ and the temps have been very high. I have no shade, direct sun all day, what flowering plant is best

Answer: There are lots of flowering plants that can take the heat, but not the winter cold temps that you get in Kingman. For summer color you can plant salvia, lantana, dwarf bottle brush, Australian lilac vine, snail vine and yellow bells. Not all of these plants will tolerate freezing weather, though so you might want to treat them as annuals and replace them each spring.
