Difficult dry areas are often associated with the shade under the canopy of much larger plants but can also be in full sun.

Here we have a selection of tried and trusted varieties that will thrive in dry sunny situations but please do remember that newly planted trees, shrubs and hedging will need regular watering until they are well established.

If you are looking for inspiration for dry shady areas please do take a look at our shady plants list for a large selection of plants that will thrive in these more difficult conditions.
