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.
Another drought tolerant plant, though one that needs to be deadheaded when the weather gets really warm. ‘Pink Delight’ is an attractive Buddlejas with fat spikes, while the Lochinch is a smaller lavender flower with an orange eyed centre. The Budlejas is renowned as a favourite for butter flies and it’s said that it can attract up to 22 different species of the insect – this is due to the fact it’s a nectar rich flower that’s full of the sweet stuff butterflies love.
