Drought Tolerant Perennials

Most of us have a full schedule.  Working full time, trying to make time for the gym, sports with the kids and many other activities take our time.  The last thing we have time for is gardening, but we all want a beautiful relaxing place to spend time when we are home.  A little planning now will deliver years of reoccurring colorful blooms in your garden.

Drought tolerant perennials are a good go-to for full sun plant beds in our area.   There are a wide variety of textures, sizes and colors.

Some of the most popular choices are:

Sedum                  Agastache           Coreopsis

Yucca                    Veronica             Pasque Flower

Lantana                 Salvia                 Russian Sage

Coneflower            Yarrow               Hens & Chicks

Arrange your perennials with the tallest growing plants in the back or middle of the bed.  Choose as many varieties as you like and enjoy your design for years to come. Of course, it’s not completely maintenance free, but you won’t have to plant new bedding plants every season.
