Drought Tolerant Perennials

Gorgeous, resilient perennials for the water-wise gardener

Once established, drought-tolerant plants will make themselves quite at home under the hot sun with very little supplemental water. If you live in a drought-prone area, are planting in fast-draining raised beds, or simply want to reduce your water bills, these drought-resistant plants are a great choice for your garden. Be sure to give them a bit of care and regular waterings when they're young, and they'll repay you by staying strong and beautiful when dry spells hit.
