Color in the Garden With Low Water Plants!

Oct 02 2014

Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Water is the driving force of all nature.” However with the drought that California has been experiencing you have to wonder how Mother Nature is fairing and might be reluctant to plant in your garden. Even when water is scarce your garden doesn’t have to be without color. There are hundreds of low water plants that would be perfect to help make your garden pop. the description text Photo Credit: Thomas J. Story The term “low water plants” might make you think of unattractive gravel and cactus gardens, but that is not the case. There are many amazing plants that are available at your local garden center or nursery that require little water and will create a beautiful garden that blooms all year long. When selecting low water plants look for interesting foliage color and shapes. This will create a garden that is captivating and unique. the description text Photo Credit: Thomas J.

It is a great plant to add to a rock garden but it does require excellent drainage. the description text Photo Credit: Thomas J.
