Drought Resistant Flowers

Hi Anne,

Spring is here and flowers are beginning to bloom. I am itching to plant flowers around my Pine trees in the front yard. My front yard gets full morning sun. What kind of drought resistant flowers can I plant that will give me some color for the spring and summer? I usually plant petunias but they dried up due to drought.

Anne's Response:

You could try some salvia, coreopsis or cosmos. Iris and daylilies are also drought tolerant.
