No water woes

Self-generative plants such as sunflower and portulaca in summer, and poppies, coreopsis and periwinkle in winter, come in this category. In shrubs, choose juniper, agave and yucca; in trees choose pine, oak, peepal; for ground cover choose tradescantia, aloe vera and ivy; and for medicinal purposes, choose Calotropis procera, commonly called aak.

Adopt xeriscaping, a new concept in landscaping, to save water. Introduced in 1980, xeriscaping is a practical and aesthetic approach to cultivating small gardens. It focuses on low-maintenance and drought-resistant plants, both permanent and seasonal, and that doesn’t mean only desert plants or those of the cactus species.
