The Spring flowers will be winding down as the temperatures wind up. Stock, pansies, and lobelia will have to make room for the summer bouquets. I need some suggestions for low growing summer flowers that can take the heat. No sissy flowers will endure the zone 9 heat. The hottest hot could be around 115.
Any flower to be considered needs to be drought tolerant. Rain doesn’t happen around here between May and October. Irrigation will hit once each morning then they will be on their own.
Petunia or maybe dwarf zinnias are being considered. Lemon thyme and lavender may work really well though.
The search is on.
