We're still in the throes of summer and it sure is hot. Speaking of hot, many plants are thirsty right now... However, the plants below are all Utah natives so they are thriving with little water.
You may be familiar with this vibrant native, as it grows all along the foothills.
If you are looking for a beautiful bush that needs little maintenance and water, this one takes the cake!
This is one of my favorites. Beautiful, white, tissue-like flowers give way to these mean-looking seed pods.
Who knew landscaping with Utah natives could be so dazzling!
Alright, time for one last Utah native. This dainty little Fleabane produces heads with delicate pale purple ray flowers.
These are all plants surrounding our Horticultural Operations Center. We hope this gives you some ideas of how to garden with less water using Utah native plants.
