Where irrigation may be d i f f i c u l t , as on slopes, or where frequency of watering may be i r r e g u l a r or prolonged, certain plants display a hardiness not shared by others. Among drought - resistant plants are the compact English myrtle, bottle bush, Tam- arix, A r b u t u s Unedo, Spanish broom, rosemary, Cassis art- emisioides, rock roses, Breath of Heaven, California holly, lemonade berry, Catalina and Carolina cherry. There are many others, names of which can be supplied by nurserymen. Drought - resistance means more than just setting out a plant, watering it once and forgetting it. Any plant must be watered u n t i l it is established, then frequency of watering may be reduced. MANY PLANTS need more frequent waterings. To prevent water from evaporating fast from soil, and save on watering, spread an inch layer or so of compost soil, moistened peat moss mixed with manure, bean straw, leaf mold, or one of the prepared spread mulch materials. By giving plants slow deep soak ings you won't need to water them as often as you will when bare soil a r o u n d plants, bakes and cracks. Alyssym, once sfarfeJ, can iolerafe neglect wifhin a limit. This is Royal Carpet. 'Pals' of the Lazy Gardener By Bob Giltnore W»OOR SOILS need not prevent your having an at tractive landscape. As a m a t ter of fact, certain plants actually thrive on relatively infertile ground. Many of our m o s t popular ornamentals will prosper on a very thin diet. Godetias are not at all particular about the soil in which they grow. This colorful annual is splendid for cut flower arrangements as well as for general g a r d e n decoration. Several varieties are natives of California and all are very much at home in this area. The plants thrive in the sun and certainly make few demands of the caretaker. A relatively light soil will prove best. ANOTHER highly colorful plant for growing conditions is the common iris. Like the godctia, iris is extremely easy to grow; once established you can practically forget it. Botanically this is referred to as iris germanica and another one of its name is "fleur-de- lis." You should keep this in mind as several iris types exist, the others being somewhat more temperamental. Iris germanica certainly belongs in the lazy man's garden. The colors, which include all the shades of the rainbow, will certainly tone up your summer garden. The flowers range through yellow, lavender, blue, red and brown. ANNUAL PHLOX is native to the wide open spaces of Texas and as might be expected thrives in full sun. The phlox is another highly colorful annual that does well in relatively poor soil. On the other hand, a fertile soil will cause no harm. The annual phlox is a. free-flowering, jn-.
