I'm probably going to use some of the Hoogendorn hollies because of their soft leaves and large berries. We are removing the large, spider-filled Burfords that are currently in the school yard.

Gaillardia, Rudbeckia, Salvia 'May Night'... what about Hollies - the evergreen would have leaves, plus the berries the kids could admire in the winter.

Again, I have to use what I've got. Thankfully, we do have daylilies. I'm also using butterfly bushes. Since it's a school they want flowers. I'm thinking less is more. They already have some good looking ornamental grasses which I'll be able to use.

Salvia greggii's are pretty tough too Zem. They are the one plant I can count on to survive a multiyear drought or a month w/ 30 + inches of rain (which is what we normally get in a year). The salvias and daylilies came
through it all virtually unscathed.

Thanks, Jim. Unfortunately for me, I have to rely on what we have in the
shrub yard of the store. <LOL>

Sounds like a fun project. I'd probably rely on lots of sandankwa
viburnums [V. suspensum]; don't especially like them, but they are
indestructible.

Great job, Kitty!  You never cease to amaze me.  My next project is
a volunteer one.  The Home Depot and American Express are updating
and landscaping a new charter school in Memphis.  I'm in charge of
determining what kinds of plants will be hardy (read "impossible  to
kill") and how many I'll need for several different beds.  I also
have to supervise their planting.  This should be an interesting
experience. <LOL>  It's an all volunteer project for both  companies.

My colchicum started coming up early, possibly fooled into  thinking
it is fall with cool temps and lots of rain.  But I love this
weather, much easier to work in.  Made $1000 at my plant sale  this
weekend.  Now that most of my pots have been cleared out I can
start working on late summer garden chores.

Lots of tomatoes, yum.

Summer may be all but over here. So far we've had maybe a dozen days
with highs above the mid-90s. But yesterday we had a good  soaking
rain
for a few hours. I'm told that's usually a sign that summer's nearly
over and the monsoon season is approaching.

Or here we had one of the most years with over 100degree days.
Today is glorious days high 80's light wind low humidity. We  have
had
enough rain that everything is still green in late August!!! We
have
big
hopes of fall color this year.

My husband and I are going to Buchart gardens and around  Seattle,
Victoria,BC, Vancover and we will fly in and out of Spokane,Wa.
Any ideas of things we should not miss. You guys have led me on
some
of the best garden tours.
Thank you all

Too bad you weren't down here Auralie.  Summer is alive &  well in
TX.   I
think it only got up to 90 degrees today and that feels like  fall
now.

What happened to summer?  After the coolest July on record, we
finally had a few warmish days, but mostly overcast and humid.
Then early this week a couple of days up in the 80s.  90  degrees
was predicted but never happened here. Now we are back into
what looks like real fall weather.  It hasn't been above 72  since
Thursday - wasn't out of the 60s yesterday and doesn't look  like
it will be today.  It's drizzling rain, but less than an inch  has
fallen - just dismal and depressing.  Add to that, the dogwood
trees are definitely turning color, and the flock of  goldfinches
that
cluster around our feeder are losing their bright yellow color. We
get so much pleasure from the goldfinches.  There have been  more
of them than usual this summer.  Sometimes there are as many
as eight lined up or fussing with each other for a turn at the
feeder.
I know they will still be here all winter, but I hate to see  them
lose
their brilliant summer plumage.
