Do you have a hot sunny garden where most of your plants literally wilt in the afternoon sun? My secret garden is exactly that - plus it's filled with sandy soil that doesn't hold water at all. This year, I'm going to look for drought tolerant flowers like these six that can withstand hot July sun and lack of rain. Gardening will be a pleasure again.

Pinner says: "Hollyhocks and foxglove, perfect butterfly and hummingbird plants and deer resistant too. What i want to know is how gardeners get these 2 species to bloom together! In MY garden, foxgloves bloom in early summer and hollyhocks flower in late summer! What gives?? (These are not hollyhocks; think it's foxglove)"
