While we are writing, here are a few Las Vegas landscaping summer tips and ideas for the summer months. We are going to focus on some pretty choices that will bring color to your Las Vegas front or backyards. Here are some plant species that can resist the Las Vegas summer heat and drought conditions.

Daybreak Gazania – This hybrid series has the look of a wildflower, colorful sunray burst atop leathery green leaves. Loves dry sunny areas. Flowers close up each night and re-open at daybreak.

Coreopsis  – A good choice for that difficult “hot spot” where nothing seems to flourish. The height and shape of flower depends on the variety you choose. “Early Sunrise” is a great selection that has golden yellow, double-bloom flowers. This variety grows to 20 inches tall, blooms all summer and attracts butterflies.

Lantana  – Lantana’s aromatic clusters are a mix of red, orange, yellow, or purple and white. It is good for spot groundcover, accent color, containers and planters. Prune back heavily in the spring to encourage new growth.

Salvia – If you are trying to create a patriotic flower bed there are red and blue varieties of Salvia that work great in full sun exposure. “May Night” grows 18 to 24 inches tall with spikes of deep purple. “Victoria Blue” is a generally sold as an annual but performs quite well in desert zones as a perennial. It tolerates poor soils and some drought just like other Salvias. It grows 12 to 24 inches, has gray-green leaves and blue flowers.
