Let’s not allow the “misery index” (hot, humid, hazy) to turn your high summer garden from dazzling to dreary! There are plenty of hardy and beautiful plants that like nothing more than when the mercury zooms. Here are 6 that not only hold up to heat, but actually thrive. You can still plant them now and even in July (just be sure to provide ample water as they take root).
