DROUGHT TOLERANT ALTERNATIVES TO LAWNS With drought a perennial problem even in typically greener parts of the country, homeowners might want to reconsider the thirsty, maintenance-intense lawn and try some of these ground covers instead.

Low water perennials-Ornamental Grass Ornamental grasses vary a lot, from thirsty sedges to drought tolerant fountain grass. Our pick for today is a fountain grass (Pennisetum) “Hameln”. Well behaved and neatly mounded with fine strappy foliage, this grass grows to 2 feet and sends up stalks of white plumes in early-mid summer. This grass is an easy grower in full sun, and loves a hot, dry spot. This variety does not reseed. Zones 5-9. What’s not to love!
