A Camel’s Garden: Drought-Tolerant Plants for a Changing Climate with Jen Kettel

When the dog days of summer hit, many of us are faced with water bans that limit our ability to water our lush gardens. During this prolonged drought in 2020, we find ourselves carefully monitoring the water level in rain barrels and hoping for the next rainfall. What if we started to incorporate plants that simply need less water? In this live webinar, Jen will share the effects of drought on woody plants and describe plant adaptations for dealing with drought. Most importantly, she will introduce us to a new palette of plant material that will decrease your water use while increasing species diversity and beauty in your home landscape.
