Texas sage is a bushy, upright, warm season annual from the south-central and southeastern United States and Mexico. Markedly heat and drought tolerant, it offers spikes of showy bright red flowers from midsummer to frost. These flowers are hummingbird magnets and spent spikes should be deadheaded regularly to make way for more blooms.

Easy to grow and adaptable, Texas sage prefers hot sun and well drained average soil. This salvia is ideal for sunny mixed borders, and dwarf selections work well...

(Creeping Zinnia)

This wonderful little heat-loving annual is an underused bedding or container ornamental. The creeping zinnia creates a mounded carpet of fine, green foliage that becomes covered with tiny, golden yellow daisies with large black centers. The blooms of this Mexican native appear non-stop from early summer to frost. It is an easy annual that is even easier to grow from seed.

The green foliage is small, oval and densely covers the plant’s prostrate stems. The daisies have short yellow ray petals...

(Creeping Zinnia)

The Starbini creeping zinnia, also dubbed 'Aztekengold', is a dynamic, heat-loving annual ideal as a bedding or container ornamental, but underused. This creeping zinnia selection was developed in Deitingen, Switzerland and forms a sprawling but semi-upright mound of fine, green foliage. The leaves and flowers of Starbini are larger than other creeping zinnia; the bright yellow daisies have green centers that become nearly black. Descended from a species native to Mexico, Starbini flowers non-stop...

(Cereal Rye)

Often called "poor man's wheat", the annual grass grain rye is more tolerant of nutrient poor soils and cool summer temperatures, making it a vital foodsource for people in areas of the world where wheat is difficult or impossible to raise to harvest. A tall annual grass native to extreme western and southwestern Asia, it was regarded as a domesticated grain by about 1800 B.C. in the Balkan region. Ironically, rye came into man's favor only after being discovered as a weed growing alongside wheat...

(Common Groundsel, Old-Man-in-the-Spring)

Common groundsel is one of the bad, weedy Senecio species that you want to remove from your garden at all costs. It's easily distinguished by vase-shaped, greenish yellow flowers that never seem to open and lustrous, slender leaves with coarsely toothed edges. A noxious annual spring weed that originates from Eurasia, it thrives in open, disturbed areas and roadsides where light is abundant and the ground well-drained.

Rosettes of lustrous, deep green leaves with roughly toothed edges...
