The Proper Plants
When selecting Water Smart plants, consider the purpose the plants will serve. Are you improving your foundation landscape, adding shade, creating a windbreak, or adding color? Do you want perennials or annuals? How much time can you devote to maintenance? Take into account each plant's hardiness, light requirements, resistance to disease and insects, pruning requirements, mature size, and invasiveness, and learn which species, varieties, and cultivars meet your needs.
The following links list Water Smart plants for JCC. Each is listed because it is water efficient by nature or native to the region, and should thrive under natural conditions.
If you have any questions about these plants, please do not hesitate to talk to your local Water Smart nursery or landscaper. They are committed to helping you be Water Smart.
