Whether you live in a dry area with watering restrictions, or even if you live in an area with plenty of natural rainfall, a garden needs plants that keep going even when the weather gets hot and dry. If you choose plants that take heat and dry weather in stride and design your garden with low water use in mind, you’ll spend fewer days dragging a hose around the garden when you could be relaxing in the shade. Don’t stop watering these plants just because they can tolerate some drought. But rest easy knowing that when the temperature spikes, your water bill doesn’t have to spike, too! Scroll on to learn more about each plant.
