Gardening in the summer can be a huge hassle, and most people don’t want to spend the time or energy just to watch their precious crops dry out. That's why drought-tolerant shrubs are the perfect solution to counter scorching summer heat. Take a look at Lawler Landscaping ’s list of water-efficient shrubs that will stand out and compliment any yard.
Panicle hydrangeas bloom beautifully in the intense summer heat. Their large 6-15 inch white blooms makes them ideal for almost any yard. Not only are they easy to maintain, but they can light up your lawn with vibrancy. Place shrubs in full sunlight and well-drained soil to ensure they bloom to perfection.
Flowering quinces can grow up to 15 feet tall and bear gorgeous scarlet red flowers. Even during a drought season these shrubs consistently bloom, making them perfect to keep all summer long. The flowering quinces do best in partial shade.
Mapleleaf viburnums produce large clusters of flowers that can grow up to five feet tall. Their magnificent color changes over time from bright green to shades of yellow, orange, red and purple. They are the perfect addition to a well-groomed yard.
Blue mist shrubs thrive in the summer heat. Even with the lack of water and humidity, they can reach three feet tall and add a touch of color to any lawn. Though the blooms can be short-lived, the dark blue flowers make them one of the most appealing to plant in the summer.
Along with saving money on the next water bill, these shrubs are sure to save time during the gardening process. There is no need to sacrifice your yard to the hot summer sun. Contact Lawler Landscaping for more information on how to ensure your property looks as beautiful as ever.
