Drought Tolerant Plants
Drought tolerant and waterwise garden plants that can cope with low rainfall, free draining soil, and forgetful watering schedules.... Some need sun, some grow in shade, some don't need much water, and some prefer rainfall but can survive for short periods without.
While the plants are young and establishing, for at least the first three months after planting, water regularly to help them form roots and new shoots. FREE SHIPPING on orders over $250
