Drought Tolerant Ground Covers And Perennials

Drought-tolerant plants are fabulous choices for the garden. These plants—typically native to hot dry climates—are adapted to thriving in challenging conditions, making them valuable assets in times of drought and water restrictions. 

There are many plants—including perennials and ground covers—that are considered drought tolerant. They need to be watered regularly but once established, they are tolerant to dry spells or prolonged hot dry conditions.

If you need to fill or cover up large bare patches in the garden, ground covers are ideal. They're great 'bang-for-buck' plants, spreading quickly over vast areas while also preventing soil erosion, reducing water loss and suppressing weeds. 

Let's take a look at some of the most popular drought-tolerant ground covers and perennial plants.
