Here’s a closer look at each of these beautiful flowers.
Adenium is a succulent, thick-stemmed shrub with beautifully crooked branches and typically pink blossoms. As a blooming perennial, this plant does best in full sun or partial shade.
Angelonia’s flowers can be mauve, pink, purple, white or blue, and it blossoms all summer. This butterfly- and bee-friendly plant is great along a border or in a container, and it thrives in hot and sunny locations like Scottsdale.
Bright and long-lasting, Coreopsis typically continues to bloom long after most summer flowers are done for the year. These flowers are small enough to use in window boxes or in containers, but they also thrive in the ground with daily watering during the summer.
Also called coneflower, Echinacea is a hardy perennial that can grow up to 5 feet tall. They flower in a wide range of colors, including purples, pinks and whites, and they do best in full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil and regular watering.
Golden Fleece, also known as autumn goldenrod, can grow up to 4 feet tall and attracts butterflies and bees – so if you’re growing a pollinator garden, this is a must-have. This plant’s tiny, bright yellow flowers do well in full sun and well-drained soil.
Lantana comes in several varieties with flowers that range between purple, pink, white, orange and red – and some blooms are multi-colored, as well. These flowers do best in full sun or partial shade with regular watering.
Lisianthus looks a lot like a rose – and they come in as many colors. These flowers are great for flower beds, borders and container planting, provided you give them rich, well-drained soil and partial sun with afternoon shade.
Portulaca’s vivid colors – yellow, orange, red, purple, pink and white, to be exact – make it a wonderful addition to your Scottsdale backyard. These drought-tolerant flowers only require minimal moisture to bloom, and they’re beautiful around borders or in containers.
Tangerine Beauty Cross Vine is easy to grow. With its woody vines bursting with flowers, this plant attaches itself to most surfaces with clinging tendrils. The vine can grow up to 30 feet long in full sun with regular watering.
