When it comes to drought-tolerant plants, the first ones you normally think about are aloe, agave, various cactus species and other desert-dwelling flora. The fact is, however, that there are many other types of plants that can resist drought and hot weather, and they don’t even look like desert plants.
The blanket flower (Gaillardia) is one of the best examples of this. The plant is one of the most cheerful and fascinating plants you can add to your garden, and it will definitely brighten your mood. The plant loves well-drained soil, so it’s easy to see why it would thrive in a drought environment.
Lamium is another species that fares well in drought conditions, although it doesn’t resist much in direct sunlight. This plant is best placed in the cool shade under a tree, and once its flowers bloom during late spring, it will spread out to create a beautiful flower bed all on its own.
Finally, you can also think of adding a few “pinks” – which is the common nickname for the flowers of Dianthus. This plant features an impressive variety of species, and most of them bloom withbeautiful, pink-colored, fringed flowers that will delight you and your guests.
These are a few of the main options you have at your disposal. Along with other colorful plants like Platycodon grandiflorus and Veronicas, these stunning flowers can make up your garden without even hinting at the fact that they stem from drought-resistant plants.
