Seattle Goes Succulent


Even in Seattle they’re trying on some drought-tolerant plants for size. I wonder if that really means they’re not getting 150 days of rain per year anymore?

Plant choices… make a tremendous difference to the sustainability of your garden….

Water-storing succulents and sedums,… spiky red hot poker (Kniphofia)… are fine examples of plants that don’t need you very much.

Some gardeners complain that drought-tolerant gardening limits options and looks dull, but some true drought lovers are very showy plants.

A pretty basic beginners guide to drought-tolerant gardening, but for Seattle, it’s a good start. I give them 16 points.
