I purchased a plant (don't know the name) and it cost $39.99. when I got home, I was happy to find out that this beautiful plant had three seperate roots and actually was 3 plants. I planted one in the center of the garden with several annuals. These are in an enclosure of a 4 layer brick centerpiece built last y ear. All the plants are beautiful and thriving. However, the heat index in Phila was 104 for 4 days last week and the other two parts of that plant has basically been burned by sun and wilted. We dug it up because it is so awful looking. Now could you tell me the best flowering or non flowing plant is best for fill hot sun? I am new at this and the garden is doing fairly well besides this. thanks so much Z form Philadelphia
|I think what would do best in your garden are drought tolerant perennials. Here's a list of those that perform well in your area:
Drought Tolerant Annuals
Calendula (Pot Marigold)
Cleome (Spider Flower)
Madagascar Periwinkle (flowering Vinca)
Best wishes with your garden!
