Color in Your Water-wise Garden
Ever seen an Australian Mint Bush, a Foothill Penstemon or a Tecoma 'Orange Jubilee' in full bloom? Each of these plants is a showstopper and will thrive on a fraction of the water of our conventional English gardens plants. We will share with you some of our favorite water-wise plants that provide color and interest throughout the seasons. From small trees to ground covers, sun lovers to shade plants, evergreen shrubs to bright summer bloomers, this presentation will identify colorful low-water plants that are perfect for every spot in your garden.
