SANDY SOIL PLANTS CHARTS REVIEW CAREFULLY
These plants in chart form should assist in your review.
|blanket flower||5-8||need well drained soil|
|black-eyed susan||4-8||lots of sun good drainage|
|spider plant||4-8||thrives in dry sandy soil|
|geranium||4-8||these are the pelargonium type|
|phlox||3-9||mildew and heat resistant||globe amaranth||3-8||great for cut flowers|
|cosmos||4-9||tolerates 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
|yarrow||3-8||drought tolerant poor soil|
|aster||5-7|| full sun well drained soil but evenly moist|
|cone flower||4-9s&w||Average soil and hot dry conditions|
|daylily||4-9s&w||Some varieties take winter cold and southern sun|
|red hot poker||5-8s/10w||well drained but not dry soil|
|gayfeather||4-8s/9w||full sun with well drained soil|
|stonecrop/sedum||3-9s&w||thrive 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
|Amur Maple||3-8||drought and heat tolerant|
|butterfly bush||3-8>/td>||full sun and well drained soil|
|smoke tree||5-8s/9w||tolerant of most soil types|
|lavendar||5-7s/10w||tolerant of all sweet soil types and full sun|
|mock orange||5-8s&w||full sun and well drained soil|
|rugosa rose||3-7||drought salt and sand tolerant|
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.
