For much of the country, over time, our summers are going to continue to get hotter, and rainfall will become more erratic. Observe your garden and landscape plants and their performance in the summer. For the best long-term results, replace high-water-users with more heat tolerant, waterwise plants that will thrive in hotter, drier growing conditions. The heat may make these decisions for you, by killing off less resilient species. Fortunately, you've come to the right source for these types of plants. Xeric plants have been High Country Garden's focus since the company was founded in 1994.
