You might try growing creeping Thyme (Thymus), Blanket Flower (Gaillardia), Catmint (Nepeta), Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium), Poppy (Papavar orientale), Bronze Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), Rose Campion (Lychnis coronaria ? short lived perennial, self seeding biennial) or Dianthus. All are drought and summer heat tolerant. Enjoy your garden!
