Summer's sun-loving plants

Drought-hardy plants are in demand and garden writers around the state are spending more and more time covering water wise landscaping practices and plants.

Calvin R. Finch is a horticulturist and just published Sun-loving plants for summertime in Texas in today’s San Antonio Express news.

He talks about the qualities and growing conditions for upright Lantana, Gold Star Esperanza (Gold Star Esperanza is different because it blooms earlier and larger), and Poinciana (Pride of Barbados), and Duranta.
