There are many flowers that thrive in sand. Sandy soil can be dug easily; however, the loose texture of the sandy soil does not hold water and nutrients well. With few easy techniques, a gardener can alter the texture of the soil to make it hospitable for flowers. Also, there are flowers that adapt to the kind composition of the sandy soil, that there is no need to amend its texture.

Blanket Flower

The beauty of this flower resembles that of an American blanket, hence the name. Blanket flowers are tough and can add beauty to any garden, especially in summer when they are in their cheerful, striking, vivid, and brightest shade. Gaillardia x grandiflora is the botanical name of Blanket Flower that grows 2-3 feet in height, and 1-2 feet in width. Blanket flowers come in shades of red and yellow, both have a unique purple centre.

California Poppy

This kind of flower would rather bloom in an informal flowerbed. California poppy is ideal in sandy soil gardens or flower beds. Since this kind of flower ideally grows in sandy soil, it also loves the heat and the brightness of the sun that makes it very stunning in the summer season. This has a botanical name of Eschscholzia californica, grows 8 to 15 inches in height and 9 to 15 inches in width. California poppy comes in the shades of white, cream, orange, red, yellow, and pink. Its four petals, when in full bloom, resemble a cup-like shape.

Cleome

This kind of flower thrives in tropical environments and tolerates sandy soils and poor-textured soils. It has a tall stem that can be an attention-grabber in the garden. Also called a spider flower, it has a unique petal formation that looks like the legs of the spiders, hence the name. Its petals have colours of pink, purple, or white. Cleome's scientific name is Cleome hassleriana, grows 4-6 feet in height and 2 feet in width, and thrives in full sun or partial shade.

Gazania

This flower loves full sun and grows fondly in sandy soil. Amazingly, it blooms beautifully under poor environmental conditions, such as poor, drained, or sandy soil, full heat, and drought. It has an interesting way to adapting to the weather it does not like—it closes its petals when the temperature is cold. Bearing the same botanical name, it grows in zones 8–10 and can be grown annually. It grows 3 to 8 inches in height and 8 to 10 inches in width. Its daisy-like petals come in the shades of bronze, orange, green, pink, yellow, red, and white.

Lavender

This fragrant flower, aside from beautiful, also has healing and soothing properties that make it a staple flower in spas and aromatherapy centres. It comes in the different hues of purple, and in rare cases, white. Its fragrance attracts butterflies and bees which are beneficial to its growth. Its botanical name is Lavandula and grows 1 to 4 feet high and 1 to 4 feet wide.
