Drought Tolerant Shrub Combo for Full Sun

This planting plan is suitable for full sun and has low water needs. It has excellent all-season structure thanks to the Silver Mist cedar, California lilac, Daub's Frosted Juniper and the groundcovers of Carex testacea and hen and chicks. A progression of blooms is provided over a long period spring to late summer. Bees are especially fond of the blue blooms of the Ceanothus 'Victoria' and the Lavendula 'Hidcote'.
