Top Ten Bullet Proof Plants


We’d like to share 10 of our favorite bullet proof plants. These plants are unique in that they can lend a desert or a lush garden feel to the landscape, depending on how they are combined. All of these plants are low water use and low maintenance. If these plants are hit hard by a freeze, they can easily be pruned down to encourage re-growth from the roots and recover quickly. Additionally, because of their vigorous growth rate, you won’t have to buy such a large plant at the nursery or dig such a big planting hole!
