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.

Here at American Meadows we have several test gardens where each season we plant new varieties, try out different color combinations, and grow enough vegetables for all of our employees to take home and enjoy. Read our blog to view the stunning photos taken this week.
