If nature could talk: Low-water plants do well in summer heat
We have the popular and thornless palo verde Desert Museum hybrid, named for the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson.
Cherry Valley Nursery in Beaumont is one area nursery that carries a wide selection.
Buckwheat (Erigonum) is a staple in our garden for attracting insects and butterflies. Three varieties that look great with a monthly dose of water are St. Catherine’s lace (Erigonum giganteum), Santa Cruz Island and Erigonum Warriner Lytle.
St. Catherine’s lace is large and its flowers are stunning in flower arrangements, while the Warriner Lytle forms a wide, low-lying mound with small dainty flowers. Santa Cruz Island is even more compact.
We also have several old sugar bush (Rhus ovata) plants that survive on no supplemental water. While one that is more than 80 years old tops 20 feet, they typically grow to four feet in several years.
If you have a sunny large area that receives no summer irrigation, consider fremontia (Fremontadendron California Glory), referred to as flannel bush.
Agaves and feltbush for succulents
Mr. Ripple agave originates in Mexico and is four feet wide by six feet high after seven years in our hot sunny front yard. Or consider hybrids such as blue flame agave for a smaller and friendlier agave.
Feltbush (Kalanchoe beharensis) is also called elephant’s ear kalanchoe and is a stunning plant that needs little water and some shade. In a pot it has gotten top-heavy and broke off, so it might do better in the ground.
Grab this one if you see it at plant sales or get a cutting from a friend.
Our favorite shade plant is Mahonia “Golden Abundance,” which right now features large blue berries that birds love and features yellow flowers in early spring. It tolerates shade in winter and some sun in summer and is doing well on our home’s north side.
Toyon (Herteromeles arbutfolia), also called Christmas berry because of its winter red berries — or California holly and the reason for Hollywood’s name, some say — makes a nice thornless substitute for pyracantha. It grows tall but can be hedged. It does better in part shade.
We prefer California native salvias or sages, such as Cleveland sage, black sage or purple sage, because they require less water than salvias from other countries. Still, they do better with a little more water, so they are better in areas that receive some shade or more irrigation. Sage varieties range from low groundcovers to large shrubs.
Hollyleaf cherry (Prunus ilicifolia), named for its red edible berries, is another beautiful shrub for part shade. After six years, ours is six feet tall by several feet wide and will grow even larger.
