Yarrow. Not only does yarrow tolerate heat and drought like a champion, but this easy-growing perennial is also a great cut flower -- and deer, rabbits, and most other pests won't touch it. It comes in a number of varieties with blooms in shades of yellow, orange, red, pink, and white.

This really works - we did it for our raised beds and regular garden, no weeds for two years!! The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric.

Flowering Quince / ATTRACTS: Butterflies. Plant with Butterfly Bush which also attracts Butterflies. Plant where you can see from your favorite window. Drought resistant. "Red" Flowering Quince will also attract Hummingbirds.

bird feeder? Red Poppy Sways bring some color to your garden when flowers aren't in bloom.
