A Flood of Low Water Use Plants
Low water-use plants have unique features that help them survive and thrive in our arid state. Discover the best plants for your yard.
- Select plants that will grow best in your yard's microclimates, from sunny and hot to shady and cool.
- Plant low-water use and drought-tolerant grasses, ground covers, shrubs and trees.
- When shopping for low water-use plants, look for the following adaptations: small and/or tough leaves; pale-colored stems and leaves; waxy or hairy coverings; water-storing leaves, stems or roots.
- Consider each plant's mature size and place them where they have plenty of room to grow. Excessive pruning can shorten your plant's lifespan.
