  •  Try wildflower perenniels (6+ / 0-)

    for your area.  Our black-eyed susans and cone flowers were great last summer and we never watered them (ok, I live in CT and it is a damp little state).  Also, our butterfly weed came back.  The soil has zero nutrients and is clayish so water doesn't tend to stay for long.

    Also, for some reason, I have found petunias are drought resistant and need very little tending -- pinching off the dead blossoms does help but not necessary.  I used to hate them but they come is so many pretty colors now.  And my Grandpa Ott morning glories needed nothing -- I just collected the seeds at the end of the season.
