Are you paying through the hose to water your lawn and garden? You can have big, beautiful blooms without using lots of water. Begin now by choosing drought-tolerant plants to create your Xeriscape (low-water-use) garden.
Chelan County PUD publishes a full-color brochure featuring more than 70 flowering plants and grasses that grow well in our region. The brochure is available at PUD offices and at the Riverfront Park Demonstration Garden. The garden is a cooperative effort of the PUD and WSU Chelan County Master Gardeners, who design, cultivate and maintain this showcase landscape.
The PUD website includes a database of Xeriscape plants searchable by name, color and season. Once you’ve visited the garden you can plan your own using this guide.
Personal favorites: Check out festive Gay Feather, bright yellow Coreopsis, and the elegant Karl Foerster ornamental grass.
