Plants that can beat the heat


Your newly established plant mom here.

Recently, I’ve really been digging gardening, and it’s a hobby that I’ll likely stick with. As you can imagine, since moving into a new home, there’s plenty of work to do in this area.

With summer temps rising, I’ve been on the lookout for flowering plants that are drought-tolerant or love the sun, and don’t require a ton of time or effort. I’ve discovered these 10 low-maintenance plants for easy summer growing:

• Lantana (lantana camara)

• Garden phlox (phlox paniculata)

• Madagascar periwinkle (catharanthus roseus)

• Mealycup sage

• Threadleaf coreopsis

• Blanket flower

• Verbena

• Zinnia

• Portulaca
