Do you have a hot sunny garden where most of your plants literally wilt in the afternoon sun? My secret garden is exactly that - plus it's filled with sandy soil that doesn't hold water at all. This year, I'm going to look for drought tolerant flowers like these six that can withstand hot July sun and lack of rain. Gardening will be a pleasure again.
