I have learned this summer that lantana can take the direct heat much better than petunias.
Lantana continues to grow and bloom even in the hottest weather.
I do have petunias on my porch that have some shade part of the day, and they are in the survivors group. All the other petunias I had around the yard have shriveled in the heat.
The porch has also protected my sago palm. It is flourishing even in this unrelenting heat.
lemon tree as flourishing, but it is still growing new leaves. I'm very proud of its progress, considering it looked like a sad switch when I took it out of that shipping box in June.
rabbit snacking on them earlier this summer and then the extreme temperatures. I think I'll plant more day lilies next year.
hydrangea survived. Not only did it thrive in the heat, it's still blooming.
The drought and heat have been a challenge this summer to my gardening, but next spring I'll try it again.
