Weather-proof plants
Xeriscaping has been a buzzword for the last couple of years or so as gardeners seek low-maintenance plants that will survive dry conditions. As our weather becomes more unpredictable, growers have taken this concept a step further by raising plants that will survive extreme conditions, like heat and flooding.

An example is Tesselaar’s Next Generation Flower Carpet roses, described by the company as the world’s first easy-care, eco-friendly groundcover roses. The Flower Carpet rose shown here, Pink Splash, is the newest addition to the line.
