We’ll discuss drought-tolerant native San Francisco plants, including drought-tolerant plants that thrive in pots.
Water conservation is essential to create lovely livable gardens that can survive California’s droughts. Drought-tolerant landscapes match plant needs to weather-based water supply with minimal additional watering. Local San Francisco native plants are beautiful, drought tolerant, adapted to our varied soils, adapted to our varied weather and co-evolved with our local pollinators.
