The gold-and-yellow color scheme adds to the feeling of warmth, and the long bloom season of the drought-resistant perennials make this a garden that won't demand constant care. Wait until May to add the frost-tender, trellis-climbing black-eyed Susan vine. Lilies bring fragrant punches of tall blooms. Pansies and sweet alyssum add spring color to the containers. Replace the pansies with geraniums when the weather really heats up, and deadhead the coreopsis to keep it in flower all summer.
