Beautiful Flowers That Can Handle The Heat

June 22, 2011

Listen, when you live in Texas like I do, you have to think about how to keep your garden blooming throughout the hot summer months especially during drought years when water restrictions apply. So, I wanted to share some of my top heat-resisting flower choices for those of you who may live in similar climates.

Spider Flower: This beautiful flower comes in pink, purple, and white. It looks delicates, but it can take the heat really well. Water it every few days and it will be good to go.

California Poppy: California Poppies come in a variety of bright colors including red, pink, orange, yellow, and white. Not only as these flowers perfect for hot climates, they actually thrive in them! In fact, California Poppies can’t tolerate wet soil, which makes them an excellent flower to plant in hot dry climates.

Lantana: Oh yeah! This is my absolute favorite and I have loads of it all around my house. It comes in red, pink, orange, cream, white, purple, and bicolors. It does amazingly well in the hot hot heat of Texas and the only thing it can’t tolerate is temperatures below 60 Fahrenheit. It doesn’t get much better than this when talking about flowers who can handle the heat.
