Bougainvillea Bougainvillea is a champion in tolerating the drought. It seems to be one of the toughest shrubs that thrive on neglect in extreme and intense conditions. This colorful plant is easy to grow too. 3. Portulaca Moss rose or “Portulaca” is a drought-tolerant flowering plant that thrives in dry, poor soil.

"If you're going to be serious about using markets to allocate water, the first thing you have to do is let the market determine the price," says Reed Watson, the executive director at the Property and Environment Research Center, or PERC, a nonprofit think tank is based in Bozeman, Montana. If California wants to ease the effects of its drought, Watson says, government should get out of the way and leave resource allocation to the market. "You have to have markets that actually work, that allow competing users to resolve their competition amicably and efficiently." About six minutes. Written and produced by Alex Manning.

"Who would give their daughter to this village?" That's the question posed by one man in an Indian village devastated by an ongoing drought in the country. The majority of young men in Gopipur, in the Chitrakoot district about 400 miles south of New Delhi, say that the shortage of water, and its crippling impact on the local economy, has made it harder for them to get married. It's one of the unexpected social consequences of a drought that the Indian government now says is affecting at least 330 million Indians. BBC Pop Up went to the community where nearly 5,000 people rely on a small naturally-fed well for drinking and bathing water. BBC Pop Up went to India's Chitrakoot district, where nearly 5,000 people walk miles each day to a small naturally-fed well for drinking and bathing water.

24 Best Drought Tolerant Plants That Grow In Lack Of Water 1. Agave Agaves store water in their thick foliage and send their roots deep below the soil surface to collect the water available. The Leaf has sharp edges. Landscapers often use agave due to the interesting shape of their foliage and of course, they are low care and drought tolerant plants. 2. Bougainvillea Bougainvillea is a champion in tolerating the drought. It seems to be one of the toughest shrubs that thrive on neglect in extreme and intense conditions. This colorful plant is easy to grow too. 3. Portulaca Moss rose or “Portulaca” is a drought-tolerant flowering plant that thrives in dry, poor soil. Due to its thick succulent leaves, it can survive for a long time without water. It comes in a variety of colors and requires warmth to thrive. 4. Lithops Lithops are unique stone like succulent plants due to the reason they are also known as “Living stones”. Lithops are suitable houseplants, with very low watering requirements they are easy to keep. Learn how to grow lithops here. 5. Blanket Flower “Gaillardia” The blanket flower has no special needs. Anyone without a green thumb can make it bloom prolifically. All it really want is a sunny spot and occasional watering spells. It blooms all summer long and also in the fall. It is possible to grow this plant in both cold and warm tropical climates (USDA Zones 3-10). 6. Verbena Verbena is an excellent ground cover that spreads rapidly and thrives in high heat and a little water. It comes in many colors and blooms in clusters from spring to fall (year round in warm climates). It needs full sun and well-drained soil. Verbena grows diversely in both temperate and tropical climates under USDA zone 3 to 11. 7. Lantana Lantana is a hardy tropical plant grown for its fragrant colorful flowers. Although it blooms throughout the spring and summer, in warmer areas it has year round flowers. The lantana loves heat and drought, a less demanding plant and can be grown in any soil type. Its flowers attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. This plant is also easy to grow in pots. It grows well in USDA zones 7 to 11. 8. Wallflower Known for the beautiful colors and sweet aroma, the wallflowers are short-lived perennials in warmer regions (USDA Zones 8-10), others are annuals (in colder regions) or biennials that resist drought well and require occasional watering. Flowers appear in spring and summer in clusters. Put your wallflower plant in a sunny or partially shaded place and remember not to water it much. 9. Oleander Oleander is a tropical shrub that blooms prolifically. It produces beautiful fragrant flowers of different colors, like yellow, pink, red, white and purple. Oleander is known to adapt well to hot and dry climates and grows very well in coastal areas. It prefers full sun but doesn’t mind a few hours of shade too. 10. Rock Soapwort Also known asTumbling ted“, a good semi-evergreen groundcover that blooms in summer. It is native to the mountainous regions of the Southern Europe, it is relatively cold hardy and doesn’t grow well in hot climates (above zone 9). Grow this plant if you’re searching for the one that thrives on neglect, requires no fertilizers and perform well in poor soil in the drought-like conditions. 11. Sage This perennial, drought-resistant herb is famous for its aromatic flavor. The best time to grow is when the weather starts to warm up after the frost (and when there is abundant sunshine). Sage has low watering requirements and overwatering can kill the plant quickly. 12. Poppy Thanks to the vibrant colors, poppies are the biggest attraction in any garden or in a patio. To grow poppies all you need is a sufficient exposure to sun and low to moderate watering. Check out how you can grow poppies in pots here. 13. Lavender Cotton This mound forming shrub has grey-green foliage and pretty button like flowerheads that appear in summer. Grow this plant in a well-draining, loamy soil in full sun. 14. Sedum Known for its resistance to drought, it is sufficient to water it once a week in the spring and summer and, if require, once a month in winter. This plant grows well in all soil types and prefers plenty of light and sunshine. There are many sedum varieties available and almost all of them are low maintenance. You can choose the flowering ones or those with variegated foliage. 15. Adenium Also known as “Desert rose”, adenium is a tropical succulent plant that requires occasional watering. Adenium requires full sun and heat to thrive, however, it can also be grown as a houseplant in colder climates. 16. Lavender 17. Rock Daisy 18. Globe Thistle 19. Rose Campion 20. Red Valerian 21. Euphorbia 22. Russian Sage 23. Yarrow 24. Cactuses and Succulents Source - http://balconygardenweb.com/24-best-drought-tolerant-plants/
