Can you help me select plants for my Mediterranean Garden?
I'm trying to beef up my Mediterranean garden this season. But it's been a difficult challenge. I've added agapanthus, some aloes, salvias, lavender, rosemary, echinvera (sp), and knipfofia (sp).
My climate makes it hard for me -- wet, wet cold winters (6' of rain with snow in feb) and hot, hot, hot summers -- july and august are 100+ degrees most days. I'm looking for plants that will need summer minimal water.
My soil is well draining (our garden soil is decomposing granite), that I supplement with home-made compost. All of my plants are doing well so far. But I would like to add a little more color -- could SA bulbs be the answer?
Anyway, would love to hear some of your suggestions for plants you think would do well here.
