Drought-tolerant planting: 10 beautiful plants in dry spells

Drought-tolerant planting is a must for zones that see little rainfall. But with climate change many of us now experience prolonged dry spells and record-breaking temperatures that make plants that can flourish in dry conditions a great choice.

Plants that are drought tolerant are naturally adapted to flourish when soil is dry. As long as a good root system is established, they require little water even when left directly under sunlight.
