Last week on “Out in the Garden,” we introduced you to a number of perennials which thrive in the hot, dry summers of Central Texas.
This week, Liz McVeety with the Zilker Botanical Garden is back to give more suggestions. She offered to YNN’s Donna Friedenreich several more perennials which love the heat and bloom all summer.
For more information on native and adapted landscape plants, check out GrowGreen.org or Doug Welsh's piece “Sizzling Summer Color for Texas Gardens.”
