Plants for hot overhead sun Planting Guide & Tips

Sunlight

When choosing plants for your garden it’s important to work with species that will thrive under your local climate. In the hot Australian summer months in particular, choose plants that thrive under the hot overhead sun. While it’s typically better to stick to plants that are native to your climate, you can also experiment with other plant species from similar environments. Take a look at our collection of plants most suited to hot overhead sun, like rosemary (not only aesthetically pleasing but beautifully scented), Shasta daisy and acute sedge for your guide to the best sun loving plants.
