The Morning Dew garden will revel in the extra moisture available in the shady areas as it delivers warming hues to those darker, cooler areas of your yard. This garden offers a touch of cottage whimsy with the beautiful, curled foliage of the Coral Bells and Lady’s Mantle coupled with blooms that dance above their basal foliage.  The purple Pasque Flowers give way to reds and pinks of the Coral Bells and Whirling Butterflies and the eye-catching flowers of the Red Dwarf Columbine in late spring to early summer. Warm up those dewy corners with a sunrise of color with this 60 sq. ft. perennial garden featuring 15 part shade, xeric plants.

What To Expect

  • Our xeric gardens feature anywhere from 14 to 30 starter plants in 4-inch pots. Plants will be small relative to their mature size, and they will not be in full bloom.
  • "First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap!" During the 1st and 2nd growing season, xeric plants will be in the establishment phase – requiring regular watering to encourage a deep taproot system, and not yet having reached their full size. On average, allow 3 years for your Xeriscape garden to reach full maturity!
  • Gardens will easily fit in a small car  - yes, we're talking Mini Cooper small - unless you ordered multiple gardens (we're not judging). One garden will come in either one or two 2 ft. x 1 ft. trays (pictured left).
  • *When necessary, Resource Central shall select appropriate plant substitutions.

What Customers Say

Colorful and Unique Blooms that Require Little Water

"I think you are providing an awesome service. And I love my front yard knowing that as it gets established, it will need little water - and I have flowers instead of cactus!”

City of Westminster Customer

Take the Guess Work Out of Xeriscaping!

"I loved this program so much! It would have been so difficult to learn about which plants to choose, and to locate them in various nurseries. You did it all for me! The program is very efficient and well communicated. I appreciated the email messages and the ease with which I was able to pick up my plants."
