Water Smarts Foliage plants shine in this drought-tolerant garden. Many drought-tolerant plants offer less-showy blooms, but make up for it with interesting foliage, such as this Japanese bloodgrass. The combination of grass and concrete in many curb strips doesn't do much to stem water loss, but this planted version catches water before it hits the street. In place of grass, choose drought-tolerant plantings, which are more likely to prevent erosion. Shade, too, can be a necessary element in the fight against water loss: Plants lose a lot of moisture from evaporation on hot days. Grasses and artemisia offer beautiful foliage in this planted bed.
