A lot of us can’t help going away for long periods during warmer weather and having to leave our gardens without the regular watering or sprinkling they so desire. However, it’s possible plant for the problem and there are a number of great plants that can survive with little or no water and still look fine. These plants generally originate in the Mediterranean area, South America and often South Africa too. The one’s we’re going to suggest are quite versatile and can be grown in most temperate climates with warm summers as they are both hardy and drought resistant. So, let’s take a look at five of the best drought resistant plants for your garden.
These June flowering plants and the Catherine de la Mare is among the most striking thanks to their blue flower with a hint of pink. Penstemon’s flower comes out from June until the late autumn and once they are in well-drained soil creates no problems for the winter either. The ‘Garnet’ is probably the hardiest version of the plant and produces a number of flowery stems. One thing to remember is not to cut the top growth of these plants until after winter as it protects them from the cold weather.
