Answer: You've certainly got a difficult situation to deal with. Here are two possible solutions: Burpee's carries a collection called 'Long, Hot Summer Garden'. The plants are especially selected for their tolerance of hot, dry conditions, and include Celosia, Cosmos, Marigolds, plus others. Second suggestion, have you considered a wildflower meadow mixture? Usually they contain both annual and perennial plants, can withstand droughty conditions, and will reseed, helping to crowd out competing weeds. Burpee's catalog carries a collection of wildflower mixes (order online at http://www.burpee.com, or phone toll-free for a catalog (800) 888-1447). Johnny's Selected Seed Catalog offers sever wildflower mixes, as well. Contact them at (207) 437-4301, or write to Johnny's Selected Seeds, Foss Hill Rd., Albion, ME 04910-9731.
