Tag Archives: drought tolerant


August is an outstanding month for one of our favorite perennials, Echinacea. These drought and deer resistant perennials come in a wide variety of bloom colors, making them outstanding cut flowers. Our picture above is of the bright red, “Sombrero Red Salsa”, hot, hot, hot! Our perennial selection is dressed up with the warm glow of the late summer, early fall bloomers.
