      Waterwise Plants for Sustainable Gardens: 200 Drought-Tolerant Choices
      for All Climates
      If you're one of those lucky gardeners who has had enough rain this
      summer, don't gloat — chances are that, sooner or later, you're going
      to have to deal with a scarcity of water. It might be a dry spell that
      lasts just a few weeks or it might be a major drought that goes on for
      months. Whatever the scenario, it doesn't make sense to fill your
      garden with plants that need constant, copious irrigation. Not only
      will you be running up heart-stopping water bills, you'll be
      contributing — needlessly — to the diminishment of a precious, limited
      resource.
      There's only one sensible way to address this situation, and that's to
      start using more plants that can get by on less water. Some people
      worry that their gardens will suffer as a result. But less water
      doesn't have to mean less beauty and less interest. You can see the
      truth of this statement on every page of Lauren Springer Ogden and
      Scott Ogden's new book, Waterwise Plants for Sustainable Gardens: 200
      Drought-Tolerant Choices for All Climates.
      The Ogdens' choices are arranged by plant type. In the section on
      trees, for example, you'll find dazzling, little-known plants like
      bigtooth maple (one of the only drought-tolerant members of the genus)
      and New Mexican olive, which turns a brilliant gold in fall and is
      hardy to Zone 4. Among the perennials are the aptly named 'Shimmer'
      evening primrose and long-blooming purple mountain savory. In other
      words, these aren't the tired, scruffy-looking plants you might have
      associated with the phrase "drought-tolerant" — they're tough,
      top-performing, beautiful plants worthy of the most conspicuous place
      in your garden.
      Really, it's a simple choice. Let the tap run or let the Ogdens guide
      you to a gorgeous, exuberant, water-efficient garden.
