It is important for gardeners to know that there is a diversity of choices when choosing a drought tolerant tree or bush. Some positive traits of these plants are: they display great fall and evergreen foliage, produce exceptionally lovely flowers, and come in a variety of sizes. The tree sizes vary from towering giants, medium sized, to dwarf.

Being drought tolerant means that they thrive under dry conditions. Once they are established, they do not need to be watered like young plants. This is due to their extensive root system that seeks moisture; be cautious and do not overwater. The drought tolerant tree uses water efficiently, offers a variety in terms of appearance and saves time in maintenance and care.

If you prize the look of a vibrant colored tree in the fall, the Autumn Blaze Red Maple is an excellent choice. In drought conditions it can persevere on its own. The Black Walnut is also a beautiful, upright drought tolerant tree. You get an extra bonus with Black Walnut because of its delicious nuts and the display of its brilliant yellow leaves in the fall.

Some other well-known xeriscape varieties are Catalpa, Hackberry, Honeylocust varieties, Kentucky Coffeetree, Bur Oak, and Hawthorn varieties. A drought tolerant tree will be one of the most important investments you can make for water preservation and beautifying your landscape.
