I love the blue flowers of vitex – Delta Blues and Blue Puffball. Both are tough plants that like the sun and heat. Caryopteris and butterfly shrubs will also do well. And, all will attract pollinators to the garden! Sedums are one of my favorites for a groundcover. They are so easy to grow and come in lots of colors and textures. Hardy ice plants are also wonderful. Lamb’s Ear is a good choice too.
