Xeriscaped Plants

Xeriscape is a growing trend to help reduce the cost of planting and increase growing output. This technique makes use of the least amount of water to conserve water for drinking or for other personal uses. This method is relatively more common in dry regions such as deserts and geographic areas that have high temperatures throughout the year. Because these places have less water which helps plants grow in dry weather, Xeriscaping has always been popular.                        

Below is a list of some of the plants that do well in the south-west of the desert. They may also do well in almost all regions, just be certain to ask an expert-friendly nursery, if these plants would be in your area:

Fouquieria splendens or Ocotllio:  Very interesting shrubs with bright orange tubular spring flora that attract hummingbirds. 10 m away, no need for manure. Low water when they are traditional.

Mexican Sage Salvia leucantha: Spikes of minute purple buds and stems arching. Full sun to part shade. Up to 4′ feet long and 5″ wide. Low-and drought-resistant bush. Excellent for xeriscaping.

Green Cloud Sage Leucophyllum frutescens or branched evergreen compact. Purple-violet flowers, typically after the summer rains. Native plants are 6 m high x 6 ‘m wide. Great Hedge of southwestern landscapes.

Xeriscaping uses a variety of ideas to get the best results. First Xeriscape specialists make a study of the area and check the soil to determine fertility of the region in particular. People prefer organic soils that can store more water in it. In the second stage, suitable silhouette for the landscape is studied. All lands are transformed to a style that is functional and attractive. This not only gives an elegant look, but also contributes to a growing number of plants, even in a small amount of earth. Some people take a circular shape to land, because it gives a simple look, and grow the grass on the outer edge of the circle. Similarly, xeriscaping specialists give a beautiful appearance in rocky areas with growth of plants around it. Rocky areas are relatively easy to correct.
