Drought Tolerant

Drought Tolerant

Water shortages are a challenge many gardeners must face. But few want to fill their gardens with cactus. Is this really the only choice? With their natural moisture storing structure, most bulbs tend to be more drought resistant than other plants without this adaptation. But here we have collected a number of bulbs with exceptional drought tolerance. This is not to say you should never water them at all. But give these tough, drought tolerant beauties a chance to become established in your garden, and they will thrive on very lean water rations.

Plant these exceptionally drought tolerant flowering bulbs and plants and enjoy an easy care garden filled with color and fragrance!
