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.
This is another good bet for warmer areas as it flowers quite late in the latter part of the summer. The Hybrid Musk rose is a large shrub rose and provides a cluster of arching flowers when it comes out. The Buff Beauty is one of the most attractive and is at the top of its flowering in late August, early September.
These five are some of the most attractive and also most drought resistant plants out there. Others to look out for are Sedums and ‘viticella’ clematis, or even some daises of the aster breed. Geraniums are also a good bet for containers.
So, take care and take note – these are some of the best plants for drier conditions. And if you’re having troubles with the grass, read this article how to care for a lawn during a drought.
