Full Sun Plants – Plants And Flowers That Do Well In Direct Sun

Growing plants in full sun, especially within containers, can be challenging unless you choose varieties that are tolerant of these conditions. Many full sun plants are also tolerant of drought and arid conditions, making them ideal for potted environments too. For instance, rosemary is an attractive, heat-tolerant, sun-loving herb that can be grown in areas with full sun and in containers.

Pinus sylvestris

Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) is a conifer native to northern Europe that forms a tall, fairly narrow, dome-shaped tree. It’s the only pine native to the UK, where it grows on heathland in the south of the country and in the Scottish highlands. Once the Caledonian pine forest covered much of Scotland, but now only small areas of this valuable habitat remain. Scots pine is long-lived and mature trees can be several hundred years old.
