Winecups (Callirhoe involucrata) and Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia) seem to be made for each other. Both have flowers with rich hues, both thrive in xeric conditions and both are extremely easy to grow. This late August picture shows them in their full glory.

Mojave sage (Salvia pachyphylla) is shown here in full bloom in August. This area receives very little supplemental water, and the soil is very well-drained. Shown here: manzanita (Arctostaphylos) on the left, blue flax (Linum perenne) to the right, and framed by southwestern hyssops (Agastache) in front and behind.

Silver sage (Salvia argentea) was one of the first plants promoted through Plant Select® in 1997. At that time, we loved it for its large basel rosettes of silvery, hairy leaves. This photo was taken in the later afternoon in mid-summer allowing the backlighting to make these plants literally shine.

Echinacea “Fatal Attraction” and an undentified ornamental grass, perhaps a species of Stipa. The dark stems and blood-red flowers of the Echinacea look really dramatic against the fragile, pale grass. I should make more of an effort to find these spectacular varieties instead of settling for the common ones.
