Plants You Hardly Have to Water

Say “Hasta Luego” to High Maintenance Landscapes

Plants that are so Low Maintenance, You Hardly Have to Water!

 

 

What is the Number 1 reason that people don’t give any thought to or neglect their landscape? They do not want to have to take care of it or they do not know how! This makes perfect sense. Many people are afraid of the unknown. Many people have also been misinformed. We are here to set the record straight! Although some landscape designs are complex and need lots of attention, there is a landscape design waiting for you at the other end of the spectrum! Mind you, all transplanted plant material needs water to settle into its’ new domain, here are a few examples plants that you hardly have to water:

 

Bromeliad: Bromeliads are very convenient, non-evasive plants that have such versatility, due to their wide range of colors and shape. You can’t go wrong when looking for an attention-getting lower layer for your low maintenance landscape design.

Desert Rose: The Desert Rose is a gentle and delicate-looking shot of color among the subtle presences of other low maintenance species. These plants soften any rigid or masculine tones that your low maintenance landscape may come up against. The Desert Rose is a diamond in the ruff.

Bougainvillea: Bouganvillea are breathe-taking plants. They radiate within any landscape. They have hanging votes with full and colorful blooms. Since they can grow to be very full and very tall, so some landscape designers like to use them as colorful hedges, but this does require lots of maintenance. In order to avoid maintenance, Bouganvillea can be used as full buffers to ensure proper space for their natural growth.

Aspidistra: Aspidistra are very bold plants that grow upwards in clusters of wide blades of dark green. They make for great center-line accents in front of trees or shrubs. Aspidistra do require placement in the shade, so it is vital to keep that in my when creating your garden design for your landscape project.

Desert Cassia: The Cassia tree is a full, lollipop-shaped tree with yellow flowers when in bloom. The Cassia tree is great addition to all of your plant material in a low maintenance landscape. They make exquisite accents for butterfly gardens, but add height into layers of any garden. Its’ salt and drought tolerance make it a favorite among the Florida-friendly bloomers.
