Water Wise Front Yard
A note about these ground covers: that pretty pink plant, Mexican Evening Primrose (Oenothera berlandieri) is very invasive and should never be used by the faint of heart... it is gorgeous but wants to take over the world. My client is an experienced gardener and we discussed the downside of this plant and still opted to go ahead - but make no mistake; it requires constant maintenance (spraying with RoundUp where you do not want it). Consider yourself warned.
On the other hand, the Blue Morning Glory (Convolvulus sabatius) is very well behaved, one happy plant can spread up to 7ft, but remains not taller than 6 inches, easy to maintain.
