To help your new plants thrive, add a few inches of compost to the soil prior to planting. Some good plants to consider include yellow bells (Tecoma stans), Salvia 'Mystic Spires', Lantana (many types), perennial hibiscus, Plumbago, and Purslane/Portulaca. All grow well in full sunshine. Enjoy your landscape!
