Summer is in full-swing, and sun-loving plants are in their element. We have plenty of drought resistant plants that can take the sun! Stonecrops, whether creeping or upright, are a great option for hot, dry areas, and many are blooming this time of year. Daylilies are another excellent option for low maintenance summer beds and are available in more than just yellow. If you want to attract summer pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, try favorites like Agastache, Lavender, Tall Phlox, and Tickseed. In the woody nursery, sunny St. John’s Wort and fragrant Clethra are beginning to flower, and Hydrangea and Rose of Sharon are at their peak.
