Xeriscape

Many gardeners mistakenly associate xeriscaping plants with a desert-style garden, featuring only cacti, yucca and agave. The fact is that xeriscaping plants run the gamut, from classic drought-tolerant succulents, to prairie plants, to ornamental grasses. Once established, these plants will survive water shortages and perform nevertheless. Beat heat and drought with these survivalist perennials and grasses.
