Our dryer vent is in a conspicuous area at the rear of our house, almost right beside the hose bib. I'd like to have plants in the area but am concerned about the heat from the vent. Any recommendations for what to grow there or how much space I should give the vent? I don't want to totally close off the area as it isn't spacious and I need access to the hose bib regularly (plus the vent occasionally). The area is partial sun (less than more).

Thanks!
