drought tolerant plants?
tolerant plants are plants which can survive with very
little or no water. Since the Santa Barbara-Montecito
areas are semi-arid, the majority of Montecito’s
water use is for maintaining plants that are not
native to Montecito. Irrigation use accounts for 70%
to 80% of the total water use in the District.
1988, the Montecito Water District installed a water
conservation garden. This garden includes many drought
resistant plants, and each is identified with a name
sign. This garden has a drip and spray irrigation
watering system. There is a path that runs directly
through the garden.
