The California sun has killed our yard. What can we do?

That sounds brutal!

With such conditions, it will be important to have both good dirt and irrigation. Our planting and care guide will help you get off to a good start and keep the plants healthy. Crapemyrtles will do great in your area. If you want butterflies, plant butterfly bush, caryopteris and vitex. Purple Sunset Pomegranate has colorful flowers and fruit and does well in full sun and hot weather. For more ideas, check in with your local garden center or visit the San Joaquin Delta College demonstration garden.
