If you have a sunny yard, congratulations. A sunny garden landscape offers opportunities to plant a huge number of sun-loving flowers, vegetables, herbs, fruit trees and vines. Sunny locations dry out quickly, so it’s important to select hardy, drought-tolerant home garden plants that can take the heat. There are several home garden plants that perfect for sunny location. For example, autumn fire stonecrop sedum. This herbaceous plant is a succulent, thriving in the heat and sun. Large pink flowers bloom from late summer into fall. The foliage is a bluish-green and serves as a beautiful contrast to the flowers. Autumn Fire Sedum will grow to 2 feet tall and 18 inches wide. Once established, it needs only occasional watering in dry weather. This flower is beautiful in both dried and fresh flower arrangements.
