Looking for low maintenance plants with beautiful flowers that will grow well in full sun (even in the South!)? These full sun perennials are perfect!

Full Sun Perennials

Lately we’ve been doing a series on perennials that will do well in the shade and part shade.

However, if you live further south like I do (in South Carolina), it seems like almost anything will grow in part shade, the troublesome areas are actually in full sun.  It is just so hot in the summer that many plants don’t do well, even if they are normally deemed to be full sun perennials.

When I started gardening in Canada, it never even crossed my mind that full sun gardening was an issue…until I moved somewhere that it was.

I have had to learn what will (and won’t grow) in the sun in the south.  So I thought I would share the perennials I have found that are low maintenance, can take full sun and still look good in the middle of the summer. Click Next to see what they are.
