13 Great Low Water Plants

Here are some water-efficient plants that will help keep your home's curb appeal looking beautiful even during a drought...

Glaucous Echeveria (Echeveria secunda glauca)

It’s tough to beat rugged succulents for drought tolerant good looks. Echeveria blends beauty with strong textural appeal. Rosettes of leaves sparkle in silvery-gray and contrast artfully with the bead-like leaves of pork and beans sedum (Sedum x rubrotinctum). Plant both of these water wise plants in a spot that’s well-drained.

Star of Madeira (Echium fastuosum variegata ‘Star of Madeira’)

Native to the Madeira Islands off the coast of Morocco, this lovely plant brings eye-catching leaves to the garden, but the show doesn’t stop there. From spring to early summer, vibrant purple flower spikes appear atop stems. These plants are drought tolerant once established and do best with no irrigation in summer.
