Summer is here, and throughout South Central Texas gardeners and homeowners are experiencing low rainfall and high temperatures. While many plants and flowers seem to be flower-beds-garden fainting away, there are others that sing merrily along through the mid-summer heat. Our growing area offers many choices for tough-as-nails flowering plants that will provide the color you want, while tolerating the most intolerable summer heat. The solution to successful summer color lies in the varieties that you choose: the yellow blaze of esperanza; the delicate and varied colors of purslane and moss roses; the red flourishes of firebush and firespike as well as the shade tolerant favorite penta . . . colorful plants that will keep your South Texas landscape lively thought out the dry months.
