I have an area by our church doors which is shady and I live in the San Fernando Valley of California. It is very hot and dry for months and we are in a drought, so we really need to have water-conserving plants. The beds are raised and about 4 x 6 and 8 x 8, surrounded by parking lot. I would like it to have perennials with flowers so they would look nice for wedding pictures. I am trying for a purple, pink, pale yellow color scheme. The church is a white mission-style adobe.
