Spring Garden Tips
Drought Tolerant Plants
DROUGHT TOLERANT PLANTS

Spend less time watering and more time enjoying your garden. Select drought tolerant plants that are able to survive with your region’s average rainfall. Water deeply and less often when extended droughts occur. Thorough infrequent watering encourages plants to form deep root systems. Deeply rooted plants are better able to tolerate heat and drought stress. This means less time and water wasted and a better looking landscape.
