Shrubs that you don’t need to water

We present the five most beautiful shrubs that require little water and (almost) do not have to be watered.

The summers are getting drier. Instead of watering more and more in the garden, you can make sure to plant shrubs that need little water when replanting. Plants that can cope with drought stay healthy longer and develop well – without you having to water a lot. With the right selection of plants you will save water, money and time and you will have a beautiful, easy-care garden.

We present the five most beautiful, drought-tolerant shrubs:

Common rock pear (Amelanchier ovalis Medik.)

The common rock pear is a particularly beautiful wild wood. Its cream-colored flowers magically attract bees in spring. Very tasty fruits develop from these in summer, the taste of which is reminiscent of that of blueberries. The shrub grows up to three meters high and, as a solitary, up to two meters wide. Rock pears are also suitable for a loose hedge in the garden.

Bush clover (Lespedeza thunbergii)

The bush clover only blooms in autumn – from August to October it shows its purple-pink flowers that grow on long panicles. The bush has attractive, overhanging branches. Since it does not grow taller than 1.5 meters, it can also find its place in small hardships or in front gardens. The bush clover grows in sunny and sheltered locations. In rough areas, winter protection from brushwood, fir branches and leaves is recommended. The bush clover should be cut back to 50 centimeters in spring, as its flowers appear on the new wood.

Pinnate blue rue (Perovskia abrotanoides)

What is striking about the blue rhomb is the up to 50 centimeter long inflorescences, on which the numerous blue-violet, no blossoms sit, blue rhombuses, or also often called Perovskia after their botanical name, are very heat-tolerant and grow in sunny locations, preferably on dry, well-drained ones and calcareous soils. In winter, in cold regions, winter protection made of leaves or brushwood is recommended.

Alternate-leaved Buddleia (Buddleja alternifolia)

Unlike the butterfly bush, the alternate summer lilac flowers in June and July. The shrub deserves a solitary position because it has beautiful, overhanging branches on which the light purple flowers are close together. Insects love the flowers and are attracted to the garden by them. Buddleja alternifolia likes a sunny spot and dry, well drained soil.

Judas tree, common judas tree (Cercis siliquastrum)

The common Judas tree is one of the large shrubs and can be up to 6 meters high. From early to mid-April the shrub forms its flowers directly on the trunk. When the pink flowers open, the whole shrub seems to glow. The common Judas tree needs a sunny and sheltered location. It grows best on well drained, calcareous clay soils, but also tolerates weakly acidic soils. Because of its growth and its striking flowers, the common Judas tree has earned a solitary position in the garden.
