When it's as hot outside as it is now, it's good to know that there are plants that actually love hot, dry weather.  You can have a beautiful garden, despite the hot weather outside if you have some of these plants that do well in those conditions:  
PERENNIALS:  Blanket Flower, Daylily, Yarrow, Rock Cress, Silver Mound, Butterfly Weed, Snowbank, Jupiter's Beard, Tickseed, Moonbeam Coreopsis, Sweet William, Maiden Pinks, Coneflower, Lavender, Gayfeather, Flax, Penstemon, Salvia, Black-Eyed Susan, Sedum Autumn Joy, Stonecrop, and Lamb's Ears.
ANNUALS:   Marigolds, Vinca, Sunflower, Lantana, Zinnia, Verbena, and Agapanthus.
This collage show some of my plants that like dry, hot conditions.  By the way, I have some litle seedlings of daylily if anyone is interested.  Enjoy your summer, and keep cool!
