It is possible to have a beautiful garden or front yard without having to turn on the sprinklers and water the plants on a constant basis. If you think drought-resistant plants only include cacti and succulents, think again. There are many flowering plants, like lavender, yarrow flowers and bougainvillea, that are lush, colorful, abundant and need very little watering to thrive. When planning a garden, look for drought-resistant plants to save water and your sanity: They take very little care to look their best.
