Plants that can tolerate intense reflected sunlight?

Our backyard faces southeast and receives full sun. We have a lot of windows in back that reflect sunlight, killing plants and grass and leaving long angled streaks of dead lawn in late spring and summer. Needless to say it is really ugly. Irrigation would be too expensive and time consuming, so I would like to remove the dead grass from this area and create a heat tolerant garden. But I'm not sure there's anything out there that can survive the intense reflected light. Any thoughts? We are in zone 7b Georgia.
Thanks!

Hello -- I have three beautiful climbing rose bushes, they're about 5-6 years old. Healthy. All three were planted at the same time, and this past fall I noticed that all three had developed an offshoot a good two feet away from the base plant. Those offshoots are developing nicely, but I don't know what to do with them. They're too far from the base plant to incorporate into the trellis. If I dig in and just cut that out, will I harm the base plant? (I love the base plants and want to treat them with TLC). Are these offshoots baby plants that I should try to remove and plant elsewhere? Or should I just leave it all intact and let nature be what it is? Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

I have strawberries planted in a bed along the south side of my home. The house is old and the exterior has some lead based paint. I don't feel safe eating anything from the bed right next to the home because of possible lead contamination in the soil. My question is whether it is safe to transplant those strawberry plants to a clean location in the yard, or if I need to start with new plants altogether. Would a new soil/location eliminate the lead exposure and make the berries safe to eat, or are the plants themselves contaminated? Thanks for your help.

Honeycrisp Apple Tree won't produce blossoms

I am in central Massachusetts in a location with sandy soil. I planted two 5yr old espaliered Honeycrisp Apple trees as well as an espaliered Liberty Apple 3yrs ago. For 2 seasons the Honeycrisps have produced only 1-2 blossoms per tree while the Liberty is loaded with blossoms. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do to encourage the Honeycrisps?

Acid soil for Blueberries

I recently sent a question concerning amending soil for blueberries. The response I received was concerning soil amendments before planting the blueberries. My problem is the plants are already in the soil which I had tested - result 6.6 ph. How can I amend this soil when the blueberries are already planted - meaning how much of what can I add at once, every week withoug hurting the plants?

aspen trees top heavy and bending

We have several three year old aspen trees that have started to lean over-on the top portion only. They were starting to bend prior to this last heavy May snow, but got much worse. We've trimmed and tied the trunks together to help support each other, but are wondering if there is anything else that can be done or if we should add support by tying the very tallest portions to help add support. It's as if the trunks haven't grown quick enough to support the weight.

Japanese Spurge: I have a large circular area (20 -25') of Japanese Spurge around a large maple tree that started to get patchy, dying out, yellowish last year and now again this spring. I vacuumed and raked out a lot of matted leaves from the maple tree last fall but none this year yet. The Spurge has been growing well and healthy for 7 years since we moved in, but is now thinner and less vigorous looking. What can I do to help it? Does it have a life expectancy that's running out? I don't know how old it is beyond the 7 years we've owned it. I can send a photo if you like.
