Plants for the Summer Dry Season compose this series which survive well in full sun to part shade. Herbs such as sage and lavender partner well with wallflowers, saxifrages, ornamental onions and other plants liking well-drained soils. These plants provide a long season of interest through texture, color and flowers.
Plants that tolerate the Winter Wet season deserve to be given our love and admiration. Many types of reeds and grasses perform well in these conditions. Flowering cabbages and kales along with cyclamen provide interesting textures and exciting color as well. These plants know how to stand up to wind and rain and still look good.
