'New Gold' Lantana
Heat and drought tolerant 'New Gold' lantana provides
continuous color during the summer months while
attracting hordes of butterflies to your garden.
They are usually perennial through Hardiness Zone 8.
Mexican oregano
'Mexican oregano' (Poliomintha longiflora) reblooms all
during the summer and fall and thrives in well-drained
soils and full sun. It is compact growing, usually less than
a foot tall and about 18" wide.
'Fox Tail' asparagus
'Fox Tail' asparagus (Asparagus meyerii)
is great in containers or as a ground cover
and best located in sun or partial shade.
They are normally root hardy into Zone 8.
