SMARTSCAPE PLANTS –  Are plants whose water requirements can be fulfilled by the amount of rainfall of their climate (Sacramento Area) once they are acclimated. 

Smartscape plants are normally called “water-wise” plants.  Smartscape or water-wise plants are generally low maintenance and look good in a 'naturalized' type landscape like the example to the right. Drought tolerant plant selections used to be difficult to find or mostly mundane, unattractive plants. However, due to the demand for low water plants increasing, we now have horticultural gems from all over the world to choose from.
