Heat Tolerant Succulents in Vancouver

What are the best plants to grow in a container on a sun-soaked balcony, terrace, patio or deck that faces west or south?

Super heat-tolerant plants include succulents such as echeveria and aeonium.

Many sedums, especially top cultivars, such as ‘Angelina’ and ‘Autumn Joy’, have no problem flourishing in hot sun. Opuntia (a form of cactus) is another attractive sun worshipper.

While that all may be true, I wonder why the Vancouver Sun is publishing this information? It’s not like they get a particularly hot sunny summer in BC.

What is Vancouver like, besides the hockey, I wonder? Seems like a pretty big city. With some stunning green roofs and terraces. And look at the Convention Center roof! I think we’re going to have to do a whole separate blog post on green roofs in Vancouver.

What about ducks? Does Vancouver have any room for cute little ducks, or are they all scared away by the loud honking of the Canadian geese? Ducks!
