Drought tolerant shrubs help you beat the heat in any climate. From creating a xeriscape that needs no irrigation or maintenance to choosing easy-care plantings for difficult soil composition, you’ll love saving time and money on these drought resistant bushes without sacrificing aesthetic beauty.
Drought Tolerant Flowering Shrubs
If you thought all flowers require lots of water, think again! We carry a variety of flowering shrubs and bushes that can tolerate a range of soil types, including low-moisture areas. Crape myrtle shrubs are one of the most popular drought resistant plants we sell. Browse our inventory for vibrant purple, red, pink, white and more varieties that bring easy-care versatility to your garden. Other sure bets for adding color while withstanding well-drained soil and occasional dryness include Diablo Ninebark, Goldmound Spirea and Double Take Orange™ Quince, which blooms bright orange in spring and is resistant to deer.
Evergreens & Other Plants for Xeriscapes
You can’t beat juniper bushes for multiplying the visual and textural impact of any landscape. These hardy evergreen shrubs thrive in full sun and difficult terrain, like steep slopes and rock gardens. Plus, there are a variety of sizes, heights and hues to choose from. Sunshine Ligustrum brings a ray of yellow happiness to borders or topiary endeavors while tolerating heat, drought, salt and wildlife pests. Another excellent choice for drought, deer and disease resistance is Concorde Barberry, which also delivers velvety foliage in an intense purple-maroon shade.
