Advice on full sun plantings

Posted by moonie_57 8 NC (My Page) on

I'm interested in both flowering and non-flowering plants that can tolerate the hot summer sun all day, every day. Funny that things I have seen grown in the tropics don't seem to do so well in the full sun here. Must have to do with years of building tolerance maybe?

RE: Advice on full sun plantings

These are the tropical type plants that I have planted in full sun:

Ginger lilies
Elephant Ears
Bird of Paradise - amazingly it is coming back from last year and I left it out all winter

I am just now starting with a couple of palms, Windmill and Mexican Fan. Don't know how they will do so I planted some in full sun and some in morning sun/afternoon shade.

I'm planning a lot of Mexican Sunflower. It's not exactly tropical, but it's supposed to love the heat of summer and will go well with the hot colors of my tropical bed!
