Top 3 Tips for Planting Water Wise Plants
Thanks to Monrovia for sponsoring today’s post.
Hi friends! Here in Southern California it seems like being in a drought is a normal thing every few years. We also live where it gets down-right hot during the summer time, so finding plants that are water wise is important.
We have a planter bed out front that needed a few new plants. So I went down to our local nursery and picked up up some Monrovia water wise plants, perfect for our yard.
We’ve been baking here already. Last week we hit over 90 degrees a few days… what happened to Spring first?
I picked up this gorgeous ‘Purple Haze” Summer Lilac. I can’t wait to see this beauty blooming with it’s gorgeous purple-blue flowers. They attract butterflies too, which will be fun.
I finally was able to plant her yesterday when the temps dropped into the 70’s again.
I also planted this furry fun one. My youngest daughter picked it out.
It’s an Elijah Blue Fescue. I love the hints of blue tones. I love decorative grasses like this.
Such beautiful tones.
Here’s my Top 3 Tips for picking up water wise plants!
1. Look at your local shopping area landscaping. They are “usually” smart about picking plants that are water wise. Plus if it’s growing great there near your home, good chance it’s going to grow great in your yard too.
2. Don’t plant during extreme temps. Planting your plants during extreme temps can shock your plants, making it harder to establish good roots.
3. Look for Monrovia Plants. Honestly I’ve always been impressed with their quality and the healthiness of their plants.
So do you look for water wise plants when gardening? Any other great tips to share?
Some good tips. It gets pretty hot down here in the summer, so we need all the help we can get to keep things looking good outside!
