Small but mighty, this petite Texas native thrives in high heat and poor soil. It is the perfect plant for areas that seem too hot and dry for traditional flowering perennials. Its sunny-yellow daisy-shape blooms unfurl almost year-round. It has a mounding habit and offers evergreen, needlelike leaves. While it is a shrub, many gardeners treat it like a perennial. Go ahead and plant it near walls, driveways, and other areas where reflective heat is intense. Damianita will bloom through it all. Like many Southwest natives, it demands well-drained soil.

Among the most architectural plants, agaves feature bold succulent leaves that set the tone for wherever they're planted. They're incredibly heat- and drought-tolerant and most are long-lived. Many varieties bear sharp spines along leave margins and at the leaf tip, which adds to their dramatic presentation. The bluish-green rosettes naturally spread by producing offsets at the base of the plant. It is an excellent choice for sunny, hot, dry areas, especially desert regions, with good drainage.
