This drought tolerant planting combination for full sun looks great four seasons; well-suited for a front yard display. Strong evergreen structure provided by evergreen shrubs in variety of forms and textures, attractive bark on the crape myrtle in winter, and hot colored blooms summer to fall are some of the high points of the planting scheme. The plan view schematic shows this planting combo arranged in a long, narrow bed that is about 40 feet long and 8 feet wide, the size of a typical parking strip in some areas (the layout could be adapted for different sized beds).
