I'm looking for low growing plants that can handle full afternoon sun.

You have many options!

For low growing, sun loving plants, try blanketflower, butterfly sage, or golden creeper. Usually, we think of honeysuckle as a climbing plant. However, coral honeysuckle grows along the ground with flowers that attract hummingbirds. Are you familiar with Ice Plant? It’s also known as Sea Fig. It’s a succulent that likes full sun and is drought tolerant once established. Another one to check out is Baby Sun Rose. Like Ice Plant, it does well in sun and dry conditions. For more ideas, check in with your local garden center or extension agent. Both are great resources.

Thanks for writing!
