Plants for sustainable and / or dry gardens from different regions with a Mediterranean climate , which is one of hot, dry summers and cool wet winters. These regions are located in Chile, California, South Africa, Australia and throughout the Mediterranean region .
The flora is much richer in regions with a Mediterranean climate , botanists have developed a list we find 75,000 species of plants subjected to a regime of summer drought.
If we water during the hot months , we can never have in our garden plants adapted to the Mediterranean climate. We can not have the beautiful Salvia candelabrum , or the fantastic fruticosa Lithodora nor Abrótanos .
Drought limits us the wide range of plants, colors and striking gardens , is the misuse of irrigation.
