Heat-damaged plant care

OSU Extension has a webpage of advice about “How to care for heat-damaged plants,” and another on “Tips for gardening in extreme heat.” Most forecasters expect our weather to continue to be hotter than in the past, and both articles include advice on plant selection for this future.
