Plants For Full Sun

TROPICAL | HOT AND DRY

Many plants have formed natural adaptations to cope with full sun - skinny leaves, hairy leaves, grey or red colouring, water retaining stems and trunks. These adaptations often make them very attractive garden plants. So they look beautiful, and cope with the challenging heat and bright light of an Australian summer!
