These plants develop deep root systems that will sustain them during dry periods.

However, a plant's ability to withstand dry conditions does NOT start the day it is
planted. Pay careful attention to watering any plant during its first growing season.
Remember to water deeply to encourage roots to grow deeply. Light sprinkling every
day will cause shallow roots to develop.

In sandy soil, use SOIL MOIST. This is a water-absorbing polymer that swells with
moisture and slowly releases water as needed. Also, adding organic matter such as peat
moss or mushroom compost will help with moisture retention.

Following these simple guidelines will ensure a good deep root system that will help the
plant adapt to and survive in hot, dry, neglected garden spots for many years to come.
