SANDY SOIL PLANTS CHARTS REVIEW CAREFULLY

These plants in chart form should assist in your review.

ANNUALS

Common nameUSDAzoneComments
blanket flower5-8need well drained soil
black-eyed susan4-8lots of sun good drainage
spider plant4-8thrives in dry sandy soil
geranium4-8these are the pelargonium type
phlox3-9mildew and heat resistant
globe amaranth3-8great for cut flowers
cosmos4-9tolerates poor soil and drought

These are definitely not the only annuals that can be grown with little amending and the use of a good fertilizer you have flowers without a lot of labor.

SANDY SOIL PLANTS PERENNIALS GOOD FOR THE GARDEN

PERENNIALS

Common nameUSDAzoneComments
yarrow3-8drought tolerant poor soil
aster5-7 full sun well drained soil but evenly moist
cone flower4-9s&wAverage soil and hot dry conditions
daylily4-9s&wSome varieties take winter cold and southern sun
red hot poker5-8s/10wwell drained but not dry soil
gayfeather4-8s/9wfull sun with well drained soil
stonecrop/sedum3-9s&wthrive with only a modest level of nutrients

These again are what I suggest in the use of perennials in the sandy garden. It is still necessary to use a good fertilizer but these plants will grow with less work on your part.

SANDY SOIL PLANTS BUT THEY ARE TREES AND SHRUBS

SHRUBS AND TREES

Common nameUSDAzoneComments
Amur Maple3-8drought and heat tolerant

lavendar5-7s/10wtolerant of all sweet soil types and full sun
mock orange5-8s&wfull sun and well drained soil

These trees and shrubs can be grown with little or no extra labor as long as you apply the needed moisture and fertilizer. I shoud note that the proper moisture is necessary in every one of the charts.
