How are things going in your garden in the heat.
I am interested in those of you who live in the Phoenix area and in parts of the desert that get hot 110+. My rose blooms don't last long maybe one day, and the blooms are small. Most of my annuals have died even the verbena is suffering. I did have luck growing a Delphinium and a foxglove this past winter in the shade, well now I had to cover them with a shade screen because they are getting some sun now, they are doing ok.
I don't like the summers here in the desert, It is to hot to go out and it is so depressing to see my rose blooms like that. I can only stand maybe 30 minutes outside in the evening. I just can't take the heat, which could be because of the meds I have to take.
These are the plants that are hanging in there:
a few zinnas some of them died in the heat
I find these plants boring( except the babys breath), I would rather plant Petunias,Lobilia Stock,FoxGloves, you know the English garden type flowers.
Anyway what is growing and/or surviving in your garden right now. I am very interested.
