Fall in love with Aloe and Agave - they are VERY easy-care dry garden succulent plants. These plants are exceptionally drought-tolerant and require very little maintenance. They come in a variety of sizes and colors, from dwarf Aloe and compact Agave to tree Aloe and giant Agaves.
These are ideal landscape plants for xeriscape and dry gardens. They also thrive in planter pots. Many can take full-sun, some, especially variegated types, prefer partial sun conditions.
