Practically Indestructible Plants

Let’s face it: As much as we all try our hardest in the garden, some of us – and our growing conditions – are just not as good as others. The experts here at American Meadows wanted to come up with a comprehensive “practically indestructible” plant list for gardeners with challenging soil, water conditions, or anything else that may get in the way of growing prize-winning roses!

Fall Planting: Drought Tolerant Perennials

Many gardeners live in drought-prone areas where it is necessary to conserve water, which means a lot needs to go into the “planning and organizing” phase of gardening, even before the gloves come on. Other gardeners, in places like the Northeast, may not need to conserve water, but choose to plant drought resistant varieties to help save on their water bill or give themselves less work in the garden. Whatever your reason may be to go drought tolerant, we have several hardy, easy-to-grow perennial varieties that are perfect for almost any garden.
