Waterwise Garden Jewel Tones Collection

This waterwise design will give you color and interest throughout the year as well as using less water and resources. This collection works well in full sun to at least 6 hours of sun in the Rogue Valley in southern Oregon (USDA Zone 7b). All of the plants are drought tolerant – see our How to Water Guide (PDF). Well-draining soil will suit them best. Most of them are deer resistant as well, although it can always depend on your resident deer population.

Our Landscape Designers have curated some wonderful plant collections to make it easier for you enjoy beautiful, well thought out gardens that will thrive in the Rogue Valley climate. The collections include vignettes that complement each other and give all season interest, along with arrangement instructions, plant descriptions and spacing guidelines. The work is done! 

Order your plant collection to have it ready for pickup at the nursery and enjoy a 10% discount. Each collection includes a planting plan for a 90-100 square foot bed. If your space is larger, feel free to repeat the scheme and order more than one collection. Appropriate substitutions may be made depending on plant availability.
