Partial shade, drought tolerant plants for coastal San Diego
Long time luker, first time poster here. I'm having a hard time finding good plants to fill a strip along the house after some remodeling/landscaping.
The strip is between 2 and 3 feet wide, and gets about 3 hours of sun (mid-morning until 1pm or so). See picture.
I was hoping to put in drought-tolerant plants, especially because I don't want much water that close to the house, but I'm finding that most plants that like it dry, also like it sunny and hot. Ideally I would love to plant something along the lines of rosemary and lavander mixed in with a few rocks, but they seem to really want full sun.
Any suggestions on some kind of similar plants that might be a good fit for that space? I'm in coastal San Diego, so that's zone 10a or so (summers never get very hot either--around 80F).
