Join Lisa Roper, horticulturist at Chanticleer Garden, for a tour through Chanticleer’s gravel garden filled with drought-tolerant plants. Chanticleer Garden, one of the region’s finest gardens and a frequent programming partner with PHS, is currently closed to the public in accordance with current Pennsylvania health regulations, but you can enjoy a glimpse of some of their beautiful plantings in this video while learning gardening lessons you can apply at home.
Drought-tolerant gardening is a great way to conserve water and add beauty to a dry climate, where sturdy perennials thrive with minimal care. As shown by Lisa, gravel can be used to encourage further drainage, letting these plants thrive in hot and dry conditions.
Enjoy a look at the beautiful yellow blooms of Euphorbia myrsinites standing out amongst the beautiful foliage of Salvia argentea and other surrounding plants.
