Drought-Resistant Landscape Plan


Drought-Resistant Plants for Water-Wise Landscaping

The plan calls for 3 loose rows of perennials. Bluebeard, a tall plant, will dominate the back row, where it won't obscure shorter plants. The middle row is staggered with drought-resistant perennials of intermediate heights: moonbeam coreopsis, purple coneflowers and "Autumn Joy" stonecrop. At its back, and punctuating the whole ensemble as a focal point, is a tall ornamental grass. Finally, mounds of a shorter, drought-resistant ornamental grass variety are staggered with lamb's ears to comprise the front row.
