The aim of The Drought Garden is to provide information on trees, plants and shrubs that are tolerant to heat and drought, and to provide that information in an easy to use format. On each page, you will find facts about that particular plant including height, longevity and zones where it can be planted.
We are also working to gather and provide information on ways in which people can prepare for droughts in order to better withstand the conditions that come with extreme water shortages and weather conditions. Some of these efforts include gathering information on water collection and retention methods.
If you do not find information about a particular plant, shrub or tree you are looking for, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will work to add it to our site. Thank you for visiting today!
