Drought Tolerant Review by Julie W | Zone: 8a
Quality
Wonderful to have such pretty plant with so much height when miniatures are getting all the attention. Takes Texas heat and drought. Because drought tolerance is result of tap root, give it a couple of seasons to establish. Don't skimp on water first 2 years. (Posted on 1/12/2012)
