Best Bets: Native Plants for Dry Conditions

MGNV - Sustainable Landscaping Logo

Homeowners often wonder which plants will be best suited to the soil conditions in their landscapes. In this class, Extension Master Gardener Elaine Mills describes the factors that lead to dry conditions in a garden and the adaptations plants have made to do well in hot, exposed sites, tolerate rain shortages, or survive in dry shade. She will introduce native trees, shrubs, perennials, ground covers, grasses, and sedges that have been found to thrive in these conditions, explain the benefits they provide to wildlife, and offer tips for growing and maintaining them.
