No matter where you live, being water wise is the smart way to garden. And if you live in drought stricken or prone areas, it’s a must. While I love a gorgeous hydrangea, and roses are amazing, there are plenty of flowering plants that don’t suck down our water resources. These ten no fail perennials for low water gardens fit the bill, are gorgeous as stand alone plants, and come back every year!
Lemon Grass a.k.a. Mosquito Grass is a great way to deter mosquitoes. The strong citrus odor drives mosquitoes away. Not only is a great patio plant but Lemon Grass can be used in cooking Oriental cuisine, adding a light lemony taste. Mosquito Grass is a fast-growing clumping grass that is great in containers. It is a hardy plant but can be brought indoors and used as a houseplant.
