Friends with benefits: native + drought tolerant = good friends for the garden

I've done a lot of posts about native plants and have even listed some favorite native plants of local plant experts. Some of our readers have asked for MORE and I am happy to oblige.

So here is the first in a series of lists of Native plants that are ALSO drought tolerant, with live links, so you can view photos and care requirements of all plants.

Beneficial, drought tolerant native plants for the Metro DC area

I have also listed additional benefits of these plants such as whether they provide value for birds, butterflies or humans, and whether they have beautiful and/or fragrant flowers.

As you can imagine, this list took quite a bit of time to pull together, so please let me know if you find it useful and whether you would like to see more.

I've started another list that includes perennials, vines and grasses so be sure and subscribe to this blog to learn more about the great benefits of native plants!
