Hot-weather perennials like esperanza and plumbago do well. If you have a good sunny spot, tropicals like bougainvillea and mandevilla bloom in summer. Celosia, cosmos, zinnias, and portulacas also do well. But also consider foliar color to cool off summer days. In shady areas, annual caladiums are a bright way to add low-growing dramatic foliage. For a taller upright form in shade, use perennial, evergreen Aztec grass to brighten darker garden spots with its white-striped foliage. In sun, consider copper plant.
