It's about time for the local nurseries to stock up on plants for the spring. Hopefully there will be plenty of drought-tolerant plants to help us to save water while keeping our yards green and attractive. I'm hoping to add at least three new shrubs this year.

wildrose: I'll be looking for plants that use very little water and which can handle the heat. Not sure what will be available, but I'd really like some brittlebush if it's in stock. There are a few others that would be really nice to have, but that's my number one go to plant this year.

I didn't see much available by way of drought tolerant native plants this year. At least not locally. Very disappointing that the local stores don't do much to help out in this regards.
