Greg Gayton at Green Acres Nursery says Mediterranean plants also do well in Central Valley heat.

“This is daphne, Probably one of the most drought-tolerant plants we have in the nursery,” Gayton said.

“The plants you planted five years ago that are water-wise or drought-tolerant actually are thriving now in this heat and this low water year,” Gayton said.

Experts say to research which varieties do well in this area, and to pay attention to how much water they need because water restrictions can have a ripple effect on landscaping.
