Drought Tolerant

Products Filter

Plants that can survive the heat and drought have adapted over time. Some plants have deep tap roots that seek out moisture in the soil when it gets hot and dry. Other drought-tolerant plants can hold moisture in their leaves.

Choose a variety of different drought-tolerant plants with interesting foliage, texture, structure, and shapes. This will help to create year-round interest in your garden while conserving water.

Many of these plants need well-draining soil because of their root structure. If needed, consider amending your soil by adding compost or pumice.

Another key to water-wise gardening is using drip lines or soaker hoses to water plants at the base instead of overhead sprinklers. Grouping plants with similar water requirements are also helpful.
