North Carolina Plants that Love the Summer Heat


With July quickly approaching, North Carolinians are prepared for the HEAT!


I came across this blog post, Ten Plants That Can Take the Heat, from the Durham Master Gardeners Blog. Although the blog post is a couple of years old, the featured plants still thrive in a hot North Carolina summer.

Growing up in North Carolina, this list brought a smile to my face, as I remember picking several of these flowers for my mom. Twenty-five years later, Garden Sage has become a favorite in my own herb garden and in some of my favorite recipes.

A couple of my favorites listed are:

Catmint (Nepeta ‘Walker’s Low’)
Lantana (Lantana Camara)
Purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea)
Garden Sage (Salvia Officinalis)
