Plant warm-season annuals. Rising temperatures mean it's time to switch out your cool-season annuals for those that will thrive in our hot desert summers.Celosia, blue salvia (Salvia farinacea 'Victoria Blue'), red salvia (Salvia splendens), moss rose (Portulaca grandiflora) and vinca (Catharanthus roseus) are great choices for a beautiful bed of flowering annuals that can handle the desert heat.Before planting, amend the soil with 2 to 3 inches of compost and then add a slow-release fertilizer, which will help keep annuals flowering through the summer. You can also add liquid fertilizer every other week, but be careful not to get fertilizer on the leaves, because it can burn them during hot weather.Shown: Blue salvia
