Hardy plants for full sun in pots

Summers are in to full effect with strong heatwaves in my region .Now the time has come  to save the plants from direct harsh sunlight and strong heatwaves by keeping them in shaded area.While most of the houseplants can't take the summer heat in my region and are kept in shaded environment or if possible indoors only  few of these hardy houseplants can withstand heatwaves and even strive  in full sun with periodical irrigation 

                                                                      Agave Plant

   Agave are beautiful hardy plants that can survive blistering hot conditions without requirement of water on regular basis .They can be grown in small pots too and can be used in rockeries and creating landscapes.

Although there are many varieties of Agave but these two varieties perform really well when our temperature touches 40 c mark in summer.The above one is Agave Angustifolia and below one is variegated variety of Agave Americana  .                                                                                 

Variegated Agave Plant

Both types of Agave perform really well in hot summer days with added advantage of getting  free plants in the form of puffs that appear from the root of mother plant.                                                     

                                                             Rhoe or Moses in the craddle Plant   
Rhoe plant is another drought tolerant hardy plant that can withstand blistering hot temperature of summer in our region.

                                                                         Tri color variety of Rhoe

Rhoe plants are beautiful ornamental leaves plant that can bear drought conditions up to  infinite days .They are best to add as an ground cover for the vacant areas in garden and does contrast beautifully with every plant.

They can be planted  in attractive planters to add an beauty element to a corner of garden 

                                          This pic shows Rhoe plant grown in Pigeon Ceramic Planter           

When we talk about hardy plant that can flower withstanding temperature between 40 to 45 c in summer Bougainvillea is the best plant that can tolerate drought conditions and still give regular flowering in garden.


Sky shot for Skywatch Friday


  1. We are in California and we have killed a number of bougainvillea. I think there's not enough sun and heat here.

  2. Thank you for linking up with Through My Lens.

  3. Your Agave looks cool. I had given up hope on Agave as they are often heavily infested with mealybugs in my place. And these are often farmed by ants and the infestation does spread to other plants. Eventually the plant had suffered badly and died.

    Also the mean looking spiked leaves and I end up pricked while trying to clean the mealy bugs.

  4. I've never been very good at plants in pots but yours seem to be very happy! Great sky shot, too :)

    I am so glad that you took the time to share your world at 'My Corner of the World' this week! Thanks!

  5. I live in Queensland in warm weather, so found this post interesting. Thanks. #teamlovinglife

  6. Obviously agaves don't grow in Finland's cool climate, only in conservatories. But they are great ornamental plants, have admired them in Barcelona. Your white bougainvillea is spectacular <3 I have never before seen a white one. Thank you for this pleasure, wishing a great weekend.

  7. Pretty sky shot! We get agave out here in the desert, too.

  8. We live in a relatively cool climate, but during the hot summer months of July and August I have to water every two days or my plants in containers wilt. - Margy

  9. I have always had a fondness for agave with its interesting foliage and the Rhoe plants are pretty interesting too. Your last photo of the sky is stunning!

  10. Such beautiful flowers #kcacols@_karendennis

  11. Very useful information. I don't have a garden but I do have some pots with plants in my balcony. I love flowers. Thanks for sharing this with us at #kcacols :) x

  12. Beautiful flowers. What a gorgeous garden you have :)

    #SilentSunday - thank you for linking up x

  13. What an interesting plant, it looks a bit like my spider plant. I admit to not being very green fingered, I love flowers but always over or underwater everything! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time x

  14. Bougainvillea are very popular in Queensland, Australia. I see them everywhere up there. Makes sense

  15. Those are beautiful flowers and such lovely colours x #silentsunday

  16. Lovely plants. My patio doesn't get full sun unfortunately, but these are great ideas for those that do! #KCACOLS

  17. Love the different coloured leaves of that Rhoe. Not a plant I've come across before. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time.
