Heat Tolerant Shrubs and Trees
For sandy banks facing full sun, plant lavender, Rose of Sharon, and juniper. Some shrubs need drip irrigation for the first year to establish their root systems, depending on terrain specifics. Light watering during heat waves can save young plants, but dry spells cause roots to push deeper into the soil in search of moisture. This reaction makes your trees and shrubs hardier with more root mass that in turn, fights erosion. Pine trees are a good choice when planting for heat tolerance. Native species may be growing on your property, and it’s worth the effort to protect and nurture them. They’ve already acclimated to our weather zones and create shade islands that cool urban settings. Native species also attract wildlife like squirrels, birds and butterflies.
When planning for new or improved landscaping, contacting a professional is helpful, because the trees and shrubs you plant can last a lifetime. Your investment will provide years of enjoyment, from birdwatching to the relief of a shaded yard through the summer months.
