We wrote in an earlier post about making better choices when it comes to eco-friendly lawn and garden care. One of the tips we mentioned was about choosing plants that need less watering. Often, the tropical plants that people choose are not suited for non-tropical locations, so they need a lot of extra water to flourish. This is why we suggest filling your garden with plants called “water-wise” plants.
Here is a list of shrubs and perennials that need much less water and are therefore much more appropriate for cooler climates.
Gregg’s Mist Flower
Mexican Evening Primrose
Tufted Evening Primrose
