  2. Barbeque Rosemary
  3. Provence Lavender
  4. Golden Japanese Ogon Sedum
  5. Juniper Skyrocket

  7. Rosa Rugosa Red
  8. Dragon’s Blood Red Sedum

Plants that are drought tolerant still require regular supplemental watering to fully establish a strong root system. Once established, they can grow and flourish with little additional water. Mulching is always recommended around the base of these plants to keep them cool in the heat of summer and to build the nutritional value of the soil. Check out other pages for more plants that are drought tolerant or good for xeriscapes.
