Types of Drought Resistant Flowers… Just To Name a Few
- Blanket Flower- As a prairie native flower that blooms all summer long in bright hues, this is a great selection for warm tones in your backyard. It looks luxurious and natural while also being able to survive in the full sun of Sacramento. As a landscape option, this plant will survive with as little as once a week watering for just a few minutes and continue to bring curb appeal to any front yard.
- Agastache- This beautiful flower blooms all summer and all autumn which means planting it now and getting it ready for the summer will ensure you have a brilliantly colored landscape all season long. It also survives well in poorly watered and fully sunned areas which keeps you from having to designate certain sections of your backyard for certain plants.
- Russian Sage- Not only does this beautiful plant smell great on a hot day, it has a soothing purple hue that blends well with brightly colored and earth toned landscape accents. It is a great barrier plant to use on borders and outlying sections of your landscape. It is also extremely heat resistant and animal resistant so as to keep munching animals like deer, rabbits, and other critters clear of your landscape.
- Lavender- This tough as nails brush like flower grows into a full landscape accent in even the most hostile environment. It can grow in white and purple blooms that will remain intact for long months with minimal natural watering.
