Drought-tolerant, Sun-loving Shrub Border for Screening

Drought-tolerant, Sun-loving Shrub Border for Screening

This foliage-driven plant combination is the basis for an easy-care, drought-tolerant border. These plants can be used to create a backdrop and/or screen in a full sun garden.  The palette works as-is or you could choose to add additional sun-loving, water wise perennials for bloom to add further interest.

These five plants were carefully selected to work perfectly together by garden design guru, Darcy Daniels of Bloomtown® Gardens.
