Flower-filled Plant Combo for Sun

This flowery plant combination will thrive in full sun and provide months of beauty and joy.

It includes evergreen plants and plants that provide additional interest in winter thanks to beautiful bark (crape myrtle) and grasses that remain interesting even when dormant (dwarf maiden grass). Additionally, evergreen plants—the yucca and mock orange—provide all-season structure.

Beginning in early summer and continuing into fall a progression of beautiful blooms take center stage.

While somewhat drought-tolerant once established, this combination will do best with regular summer water—it can be somewhat infrequent, but deep watering will help plants be more resilient.
