In this post, let’s discuss the benefits of water-wise perennials.
Last week we talked about colorful, low-water annuals for your containers. Now let’s discuss the benefits of water-wise perennials. They are low-maintenance, need little water, and, if properly established, won’t need to be replaced each season.
Water-wise perennials need more water during their first growing season to become established, but in following growing seasons require much less water. All the hardy, low-water plants listed below offer color and interest in the landscape and have low water needs once established.
- Oenothera‘Silver Blade’ evening primrose
- Berlandiera lyratachocolate flower
- Gaillardia‘Goblin’ blanket flower
- WINDWALKER® royal red salvia
- Salvia sylvestrisMay Night Meadow Sage
- Rudbeckia hirtablack-eyed susan
- Artemisia frigidafringed Sage
- Helianthus pumilusbush sunflower
If you’re not familiar with these varieties, do a quick Google search by name to see photos and learn more about each plant, or consult a landscape professional or garden center for help identifying the right perennials for your landscape.
Then relax and enjoy a landscape that is both beautiful and water-efficient!
