Looking for something to put in my raised flower beds

ladyish2(10az)October 2, 2009

Hello ~

I have 2 large (long and skinny)flower beds in the front of my house. I've been planting Copper King Gazania. I love them, especially the color! But every summer some die :( This summer I lost almost all of them ( 7 ) I'm not sure what I'm doing to kill them. I thought they where getting too little water so this year I gave them more and I lost more. Anyway to replace them I'm looking for something

water-wise'>Water wise

Orange, Red or White

My flower beds are 1 1/2ft - 2ft high and they get water... on a drip

Any ideas as to what to put in there place? I have thought of Red Lantana but already have 4 in the front yard and they tend to get big

Thanks Michelle

A little more info is needed:
How much sun do they get? All day? Only in the morning? Or only in the afternoon?
How deep are they (front to back)?
What kind of soil is in them? Native desert dirt? Potting soil? Sand? Kinda in between?
It's hard to make suggestions without the specs. : )

My planters get full sun. The planters are 2ft (not including the stucco sides) front to back and about 1 1/2ft tall 1# 11ft long and 2# 9ft

The soil is a mixture clean fill dirt and potting soil
