Select These Plants for Water-Efficient Landscaping


The City's Xeriscape Demonstration Garden features low water-using plants that are grouped plants based on their water requirements:

  • Very Low
    Need water when first planted but very little or none once established.
  • Low
    Need more water than is available from natural precipitation, but need only small amounts of extra water during hot, dry periods.
  • Moderate
    Uses the most water in the garden, yet still uses less than most traditional landscapes.
