Favorite full-sun, low-water shrubs, 3-4 feet tall
We are planning to replace some roses with plants that like hot sun and low water and tolerate occasional light frosts. This strip gets direct sun all day, from early morning to late afternoon. The soil hasn't been amended for quite some time, and we don't see a lot of worms, so it might be fine for some CA natives.
Plant size - about 3-4' tall, 4-5' wide at maturity. I envision a row of Salvia leucantha 'Santa Barbara' (the dwarf variety) but I'm open to suggestions.
What are your favorite low shrubs that thrive in hot sun and low water?
