Thirst Quenchers

There is an interesting side effect of the current drought in Australia, according to this report from ABC News Australia. Seems gardeners, unhappy with the lack of rain, are looking to the internet in their quest to grow plants that stay lush and green. Unfortunately descriptive phrases like "drought resistant" and "drought tolerant" are often associated with plants not native to Australia, including species considered invasive in that country. Interested readers will also want to check out this related article that was featured in the environment & nature section of ABC News Australia last March.
