There are many annuals and perennials that thrive in full sun. Perennials that do well in full sun and tolerate dry soil include yarrow (Achillea), butterfly weed Asclepias), globe thistle (Echinops), Russian sage (Perovskia), blanket flower (Gaillardia), and many sedums. Annuals include salvia, zinnia, Madagascar periwinkle, portulaca, marigold, dusty miller and verbena. Put all of these will still need to be watered regularly as they are getting established.
