Need recommendation for drought-tolerant, low maintenance flowering shrubs

Hello fellow gardeners,
I have 2 long strips of grass area flanking my property about 4 ft. wide & 60 ft long. I'd like to plant a row of flowering shrubs on each strip. We're in zone 8B so any recommendation of drought-tolerant, low maintenance flowering shrubs which can withstand the hot summers and won't require frequent watering would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you & happy gardening!

Wisconsin early results yet?

I can't seem to find even any exit polling info. Anybody got more news on WI primaries turnout yesterday?

Question for iris officionados regarding soaking white iris rhizomes

A neighbor thinned out her white iris border and gave me nearly a hundred rhizomes with foliage for replanting. I had planned to put them in the ground tomorrow but it's been raining cats & dogs here past couple days, and forecasted to rain through next Thursday. I soaked them since Wednesday thinking to keep the foliage green till Saturday. Now that it may rain nonstop this weekend, my question is how long can i soak the iris without killing them? Or should i put them in buckets with dirt till i can plant them. I don't want the foliage to dry up?

Thanks in advance for your help.
