Native, Drought Tolerant Plants for Your Yard

Given our current drought situation in Southern California, THIS was the best year to take out our front lawn and put in native, drought tolerant plants. My city offered us $1 per square foot of lawn that we took out and replaced with native, drought tolerant plants, so we jumped on board with that.

Lemon grass is a natural mosquito repellent and grows quite tall. Plant some in deep planters and place on the patio or where you will have people sitting, and you will also have a privacy hedge with the height the grass grows. The scent is very appealing, not like sprays contains deet! It is a perennial grass so you won't have to worry about planting it again!!

This minimalist ring is fashioned solely from branches of grevillea, an Australian native commonly grown on the U.S. West Coast. "It's one of my favorite plants for wreaths," says Thompson. "I love how the narrow leaves are green on one side and silver on the other, which creates an ombre effect."

Western Australia Pitcher Plant - Cephalotus follicularis - This plant has insectivorous leaves which in high sunlight are bright-reddish/purple, but in shadier conditions remain green. It is now cultivated worldwide, but the native plants in Australia, with their restricted range, effectively restrict the range of Badisis ambulans, a stilt-legged fly whose larvae are found only within this plant
