What can I plant near an air conditioning unit that blow hot air all the time?

I live in a Townhouse. I have a 4x5 foot area next to the air conditioning unit that blows hot air 24/7. I would like to put some plants or a vine or maybe even a rose bush in that area. What plants can I put in that area that can survive the heat from this unit?

Thanks for writing. I'd first try ornamental grasses --- they tend to hold up extremely well to such use in the landscape --- and still make it easy for folks to do any maintenance on the units.


To keep good airflow into the units, be sure you plant any plants at least 3 feet away from the units.


I hope this helps!

Go to the advanced search option in our plant encyclopedia. Type in your Hardiness Zone and select "Tolerates Drought" under special features. You'll get a list of plants that might work in this situation.
