WATER WISE: More Water-Wise Plants

BergeniaPigsqueak
Bergenia crassifolia
Bergenia has a dense cluster of pink flowers that bloom in winter and spring. This classic California garden plant is for a dry or moist shady border. The broad and shiny leaves provide textural contrast. The flowers attract beneficial insects. I have this in my yard. In fact most homes in my area have this plant. It does very well in the shade with occasional water.

Blue FescueCalifornia fescue or Blue fescue
Festuca californica
Blue fescue is a California native plant that tolerates our summer drought and various soil types. It has graceful, gray-green leaves and airy flowers that mature to a golden yellow color. The flowers attract butterflies. This grass is my favorite. It has a beautiful blue gray color and the flowers are a nice change during the summer.

 

CyclamenIvy leaf cyclamen
Cyclamen hederifolium
The scented rose-pink or white flowers bloom in late summer and early fall before the leaves emerge. This needs to be planted in dry shade. The ivy leaf cyclamen tolerates a wide variety of soil types and can also grow well in containers.
