Big on Color, Low on Water– Plants for Drought Tolerant Gardens

Leave a comment

I want to share an excellent article I came across, courtesy of Christine Tusher and Houzz.com. There are some very good suggestions here regarding low water and drought tolerant plants for your garden, like lavender, kangaroo paws, sea lavender, succulents and sedum. Depending on how you group them, they can have a modern, highly symmetrical look, like a cool, arty Mondrian painting. Or they can be grouped together to form a lush, exuberant, cottage garden-type vista.  Thanks, Christine and Houzz!
