Garden Description

It takes some pretty tough plants to put up with the harsh growing conditions surrounding a street-side mailbox. Hemmed in by pavement, this location calls for perennials that thrive in full sun and tolerate heat and drought. With the exception of the billowy ornamental grass, the plants included here stay under 2 feet in height, so as not to block your view as you back out of the driveway. With a garden like this, you'll enjoy your daily visit to the mailbox, even if your postal carrier has left nothing but bills.
