All the plants listed have drought tolerant potential both from results in trials and what is inherent in the genetics. Remember that Florida drought and Arizona drought are different animals. Dry with drought is different from humid with drought; this terminology is relative to your region, so use caution when using this information.

ALL plants need at least 2 weeks of regular frequent watering to become well established in the landscape, longer for larger pots and shrub lines. NONE of our plants will do well watered once at planting and never watered again.

Drought Tolerant plants featured:

Scaevola

XERSCAPE & XERISCAPING

Are terms used to outline a landscaping style that employs drought-resistant plants to help conserve water.

DROUGHT RESISTANT

As a definition varies by location, it means the plant can (once established) survive on natural precipitation with infrequent watering, or withstand dry periods. Used interchangeably with drought tolerance though they don’t truly mean the same thing. Drought tolerant means the plant deals with severe drought on a regular basis, and recovers from repeated wilting.

WATER-WISE has come to mean a plant that does well in a landscape that manages water sensibly, using moisture zones and managing water use. Includes other aspects such as mulching, reduction of turf grass, etc.
