Front Yard

4,910 (488)

Obviously, this is the yard in the front of my house. Unfortunately, it faces west, so it gets 100+ degree heat all summer long. It is very challenging to find flowers that will do well in this environment.

"Hi there Lynn! I live in Southern California in zone 9, and I'm right there with you in regards to the 100+ weather and selection of plants that can accommodate that. We've had great luck with the Sage/Salvia families: Scarlet sage, Russian sage, etc. Also, Yarrow is a real beauty! We've also got lots of trailing Lantana, (as a ground cover more or less). Hope this helps! Happy Gardening! Heather Morris, Moreno Valley, CA"
