Drought Resistant Plants
Drought resistant plants are plants that are not affected by a lack of water. Some accomplish this by completing their life cycle before lack of water becomes a serious problem. Some plants retain water when water becomes limited while others are able to maintain through osmotic adjustment that allows plants to use less water.
