Some flowers love the heat given the right amount of moisture.
My Mexican hat flowers from Melanie at There's No Place Like Home are blooming and producing seed. I give them a little extra water as this is their first year in the garden.
Yellow Cosmos-Klondyke Mix, "Cosmos sulphureus," (Asteraceae)
I received seeds for these from a business associate in Tennessee. He has acres of them in his wildflower meadows for butterfly habitats. Loving the bright color.
Our native annual sunflower. No extra water. It is obviously fine on its own.
