Beautiful Flowers Without A Lot Of Water

This is my granddaughter, Kari, sitting in their front yard. The flowers are all natives of our region: dry west Texas. White broken stones are scattered through the plants for stepping stones. Also, there is a gravel path through the yard. Xeriscaping is encouraged in our area to conserve water and as the picture shows, you can still have beautiful plants that don't take a lot of water.

So beautiful. Did you grow the flowers from seed? Please tell us what flowers and how often, if ever, you have to water.

My son buried drip tape before planting the flowers. Bluebonnets are planted in the fall as well as the standing cypress (tall plant not yet in bloom). The purple winecups are perennials and are easily planted by seed. There are yellow poppies, several varieties of daisies, some are perennials. Also verbenas, salvias and I forget what all else. Water about once a week for more blooms. They will survive but not bloom as well with less water.
