8 Plants You’ll Barely Need to Water

8 Plants You’ll Barely Need to Water

Two experts share their favorite drought-tolerant plants that will make your life easier (and help you save water)!

1

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)

“This plant flowers most actively in May and June, so use it in your garden as a seasonal color accent since they come in different colors like pink, purple, and yellow,” says Chris Lambton, professional landscaper and host of DIY Network’s Yard Crashers. “Place it near plants that flower earlier in the spring, such as tulips, or ones that flower later in the summer, like Black-eyed Susans.” It thrives in hot conditions and can also be grown in high elevations.

Lamb’s Ear (Stachys byzantina)

This flowering perennial herb has a unique fuzzy texture. “It does well in partial-to-full sun,” says Lambton. “It doesn’t love hot and humid, so it’s a great choice for dry climates.” In colder climates, it will appear “dead” in the winter, but will come back to life in the spring. A word of caution from Lambton: This herb spreads as it grows, so keep that in mind when you’re deciding on where to plant it.


3

Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa)

“These plants yield beautiful clusters of bright orange flowers that attract butterflies, especially Monarchs,” says garden expert Christy Dailey of christygardens. This perennial prefers well-drained sandy soils, requires very little water, and blooms from May to September.

Russian Sage (Perovskia atiplicifolia)

“These billowy and fragrant woody stems produce pretty purple flowers that bees and butterflies love,” says Dailey. “They bloom from late spring through October.” A mature plant grows to three to five feet tall and requires plenty of sun. It’s sturdy enough to withstand wind and cold weather.


5

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)

Rosemary is a great addition to your garden because it’s nice to look at and edible. “Since this is an evergreen plant, you’ll want to prune it regularly to maintain a good shape—and if you’re using it to cook—the freshest taste,” says Lambton. “It loves the sun and can hold up well in dry conditions.” If you live in a warmer region, rosemary will have no problem growing year-round. In colder climates, replace the in-ground plant when the weather starts getting chilly, or bring the plant inside if it’s grown in a container.


6

Stonecrop (Sedum)

The fleshy leaves on this plant help it retain water in dry conditions. “It comes in all shapes and sizes,” says Dailey. “Some are upright, while others creep low to the ground, but all have attractive blooms of hot pink, lime green, and other vibrant colors.” They thrive in soil that can drain well.



7

Coneflower (Echinacea)

Known for its large purple flowers, this plant is native to central and eastern United States. It is often used as a holistic measure to treat common colds and other illnesses. “These plants are a colorful summer accent,” says Lambton. “They tolerate sun and dry soil well, although they should receive light watering in the summer months if there is less than one inch of rain per week.”


8

Lantana

Lantana is a genus of about 150 species that are native to tropical areas of South America and Africa. Luckily, these hearty plants can also grow in the United States, especially in the southeastern coast. “They are available in a wide variety of colors, and they often change hues during their bloom cycle, which results in multi-colored flowers,” says Lambton. When you first plant lantana, you’ll want to water the plant more often, but as it grows it will only need to be watered once a week.

How to Care for Tulips

How to Care for Tulips

Tips for when they’re in the ground, potted, or displayed in a vase.

The start of spring means the abundance of beautiful blooms, especially colorful tulips that appear everywhere from gardens and parks, to florist shops and grocery stores. If you’re looking to take advantage of peak tulip season or want to get ahead for next year’s crop, take note of these guidelines, which include tips for caring for tulips in a vase, in a pot, and in the ground.

In-Vase Tulips

  1. Choose the Right Vase
    “A good rule of thumb is to choose a vase that covers at least half the height of the tulip stems,” says Callie Bladow, production director at BloomThat. “Tulips love to stretch out and will typically grow upwards of two inches in height during their vase life—so it’s best to let them stretch out in the vase and don’t clump them on top of each other, which will reduce petal loss.”
  2. Cut Stems
    Be mindful that tulips grow after they’re in the vase when you’re cutting the stems. Bladow suggests holding the bouquet to the side of the vase first before cutting to make sure the blooms are the exact length you prefer. “Cut them on a bias (a 45-degree angle)—this creates a ‘straw-like effect’ and allows the stems to soak up the fresh water,” she says.
  3. Provide Plenty of Water
    “Tulips love water,” says Bladow. “Cold, fresh water is best. When you bring your tulips home and pick out your favorite vase, fill the vase up about three-quarters of the way, as tulips will drink a lot of water. We suggest changing the water every other day and giving the stems a fresh cut.” To keep your blooms happy, you can also add flower food, throw a penny at the bottom of the vase, or add lemon juice or half a teaspoon of regular cane sugar.
  4. Avoid Overexposure
    Since tulips are “photosensitive,” meaning they grow and open based on sunlight, you should avoid placing the vase in direct sunlight or heat, as they’ll wilt faster once the blooms open up. “In order to achieve maximum vase life, you want to receive tulips at an ‘early’ cut stage or ‘closed’ stage,” says Bladow. “The tulips will have a limited vase life once they reach the ‘open’ stage.” A little bending at the stems is natural for tulips as they “stretch” towards the sunlight, but if the stem looks “floppy,” that’s not a good sign.
  5. Choose Other Flowers to Add Carefully
    If you want to include other flowers in your arrangement, you should be mindful that tulips are very sensitive to other flowers. “Some common flowers that affect the tulip life cycle are daffodils or narcissus—they emit a substance that will make tulips wilt faster,” she says. “We include tulips in almost all of our floral arrangements with roses, kale, hydrangea, and never have issues.”

In-Ground Tulips

  1. Know When to Plant Them
    “The best time for planting tulips depends mostly on where you live,” says Carmen Johnston, a garden lifestyle expert. “If you live up north you can begin planting as early as late September, but if you live down south it is better to wait until December. Just make sure to check your planting zone prior to planting—the general rule is to plant six to eight weeks before the ground freezes.”
  2. Know How to Plant Them
    Johnston recommends using a drill with a bulb pit for easy planting. Dig a hole about three times the size of the tulip bulbs and plant them (pointed side up) six to eight inches deep and four to six inches apart. For the soil, make sure you place them in sandy, well-drained soil. And as for sun exposure, “If you have an area that gets a dose of morning sun with lots of afternoon shade, that is where your tulips will flourish,” Johnston says.
  3. Take Care of Them During the Off-Season
    Johnston recommends two major tasks: covering your bulbs with one to two inches of mulch and fertilizing your perennial bulbs in the fall with a slow release bulb fertilizer. “The tulip is a pretty independent flower and its bulb takes care of most of its maintenance itself,” she says. “However, if you want to give your bulb an extra boost, try giving it a shot of liquid fertilizer three to four weeks after planting and then once again at the beginning of spring.”
  4. Go Light on Watering
    And because tulips are low-maintenance, they rarely need water. Johnston suggests watering them once after planting (a good soaking) and then again when they first start to sprout green leaves.
  5. Clean Up When They Bloom
    This is the exciting part: once they bloom, you can use them to create beautiful arrangements. “You want to cut at the base of the stem, leaving as much of the foliage on the plant,” Johnston says. “Then you want to immediately place it in water so that it can start hydrating.” If your tulips are annuals (and most of them are), meaning they only bloom once, throw out the bulbs when they’re dead. If you have perennial tulips, Johnston recommends cutting and disposing of the foliage once the plant has yellowed and leaving the bulb in the ground for the next year.

Potted Tulips

  1. Choose the Right Pot
    “As far as planters or containers go, make sure yours has proper drainage,” Johnston says. “If your bulbs have to sit in water, they are more likely to rot. Avoid this by using bark to create extra drainage.” Place the bark at the bottom of the container, which will allow air to flow under the soil and prevent rotting.
  2. Plant and Give Them TLC
    Since a grouping of tulips in a pot is more eye-catching than just a single flower, plant the bulbs as close to each other as you can—that’s at least an inch apart. “You can also incorporate a different type of bulb, such as a daffodil or a crocus, between your tulips as well,” she says For care, the method is the same as in-ground tulips: don’t overwater them, add a bit of fertilizer, and make sure they have the same amount of sun exposure. After they bloom, follow the same guidelines for cleanup of the bulbs and foliage.
  3. Be Mindful of Indoor Tulips
    Johnston has two recommendations for indoor tulips: be careful not to overwater and keep them next to a sunny window.

3 All-Natural Ways to Eliminate Weeds That Actually Work

3 All-Natural Ways to Eliminate Weeds That Actually Work

How to keep your lawn care easy on the earth.

Bulk up your grass.

Thick turf with deep roots is naturally resistant to weeds. To make yours more resilient, use a mulching lawn mower—the clippings return nutrients to 
 the soil. It’s also important to water, fertilize, and mow according to your turfgrass species and region. The folks at your local U.S. Department of Agriculture office can help you determine this info. (To find yours, go to www.
outreach.usda.gov.)

Eliminate weeds more efficiently.

Use a 
stirrup (a.k.a. hula) hoe. It cuts weeds off just below the soil and won’t bring up new weed seeds, says Cheryl Wilen, Ph.D., an integrated-pest-management adviser at the University of California Cooperative Extension, in San Diego.

If you must, buy a kind weed killer.

Look for 
an herbicide that includes one of these ingredients: potassium salts of fatty acid, clove or citrus oil, chelated iron, or corn gluten meal. Always use the recommended amount, and wear the protective 
gear suggested in the label directions.

Gloves

“The most important tools in the garden are your hands, which is why you need to protect them with a good pair of gloves,” says Johnston. “I like for my gloves to be fitted so that I can really feel the plants that I am working with. Second skin garden gloves are the absolute best—they are comfortable and dry quickly.”

Moisture Meter

If you’re using pots or other containers, this handy tool will measure how dry the soil is. “No more wondering if the plant looks like it needs to be watered—now you’ll know for sure,” says Gutierrez.

The 10 Richest People In America Live In These Four Places

The 10 Richest People In America Live In These Four Places

Mega-mansions, luxury apartments and eco-homes are what being a billionaire can get you.

The annual Forbes 400 list is out, and that means two things: Bill Gates is still the richest man in the world, the nation’s biggest names in tech are still dominating the top slots. Perhaps most intriguing, however? Taking a close look at these tycoons’ real estate investments to find out what they’re spending those hard-earned bucks on.

Those investments typically arrive in the form of luxury real estate (or, if you’re Warren Buffet, modest real estate). It also just so happens that many of those who are among the top 10 are actually practically neighbors.

The Real Wolf Of Wall Street House Is For Sale

Here’s a peek at impressive homes and neighborhoods where America’s top ten wealthiest have put down roots.

Medina, Washington: Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos

Bill Gates’s $124.99 waterfront home in Medina, Washington, near Seattle.

Bill Gates might be the founder of the world’s largest software company, but don’t mistake him for a Silicon Valley resident. The richest man in America actually lives in a 66,000-square-foot home in Medina, a Washington city outside of Seattle.

The mansion, known as Xanadu 2.0, was built by Gates in 1994 for $63.2 million, and today is worth a whopping $124.99 million, according to the King County Department of Assessments.

The 7-bed, 18.75-bath home sits on the edge of Lake Washington, and has some pretty futuristic features, including a sensor system that automatically adjusts room temperature and lighting to each visitor’s unique preferences as they move throughout the house, computer screens that allow you to display the artwork of your choice, and a 60-foot-long pool that plays music under water.

We’d expect nothing less from the guy who founded Microsoft.

Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Seattle-based Amazon.com, and the second wealthiest man in America, also calls Medina home. Who knew the nation’s two richest men are practically neighbors? This actually shouldn’t be that surprising though, since, according to the Seattle Times, Medina is known in the area “as a place where very wealthy people want to be left alone.” It’s also home to a co-founder of Costco, the vice-chairman of AT&T, and multiple athletes. The average price for a home in the area? Nearly $2.43 million.

Though Bezos also owns homes in Beverly Hills and Manhattan, this 5.35-acre waterfront compound is certainly his most grand. It even includes a caretaker’s cottage and 4,500-square-foot boat house, according to Forbes.

The 29,000-square-foot home wasn’t always so mammoth, though. In 2010 the property underwent a $28 million renovation, which expanded it from (a still astounding) 13,000-square-feet.

Hey, we all have to start somewhere.

Silicon Valley: Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Ellison, Larry Page and Sergey Brin

The Most Expensive House In Every American State

Four of the nation’s top ten richest people live in this San Francisco Bay tech hub.

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is perhaps the most famous of Silicon Valley’s current residents, and lives in a $7.5 million home that he bought in 2011 in the Crescent Park neighborhood of Palo Alto — just a short drive from Facebook’s headquarters.

Zuckerberg and wife, Pricilla Chan, share 5,000 square feet, which includes 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, a lush garden, a pool and a cozy outdoor fireplace. Good luck trying to catch a glimpse inside, though — the property is heavily concealed by trees and a wall.

Talk about using your privacy settings.

Oracle Corporation founder Larry Ellison is known for collecting real estate, from mansions in Malibu and Newport, Rhode Island, to an estate and private golf course in Rancho Mirage, California, and almost the entire Hawaiian Island of Lanai. His primary property, though, is a $110 million Japanese-inspired manse in Woodside, California, another Silicon Valley town that’s just a short drive from Palo Alto.

The home, which took about seven years to build, spans 23 acres and is rumored to have taken somewhere between $100 and $200 million to complete, according to Variety.

It’s no surprise Ellison chose to settle in Woodside — it’s one of the nation’s wealthiest communities (the average home price in the area is around $1.8 million, according to Zillow) and is home to other big names in tech and business like the CEO of Sony, Kazoo Hirai, the CEO of GoPro, Nick Woodman, and Charles R. Schwab, to name a few.

And what would Silicon Valley be without Google? The tech company’s co-founder and Alphabet CEO, Larry Page, lives in a $9.8 million 6-bed, 6-bath, 8-thousand-square-foot Spanish style home in Old Palo Alto, according to Zillow.

The home, built in 1934, isn’t as new as you might expect, but in 2009 Page began constructing an “ecohouse” right beside it after buying up properties next door. The new 6,000-square-foot eco-friendly mansion has solar panels, a parking lot paved with sustainable materials and a rooftop garden among other green features, according to Buisness Insider.

Just around the corner in Los Altos Hills you’ll find Google’s other co-founder and Alphabet president, Sergey Brin. The town neighbors on Mountain View, Google’s homebase, and also the town of Los Altos, where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built Apple’s first computer in Job’s garage in 1976.

These days it’s primarily a town for older wealthy people and tech-types, with an average home price of nearly $5 million, making it the 11th most expensive zip code in the US according to Forbes.

10 Best Instagram Accounts For Interior Design

10 Best Instagram Accounts For Interior Design

For a new generation of designers, Instagram is not only an outlet for creativity, but also a crucial way to attract clients.

The design world isn’t what it used to be — and that’s probably for the best. Social media has become not only a creative outlet for a new generation, but also a crucial way to find clients. An innovative young jeweler exhibits her wares not just at the usual trade fairs, but amid the avant-garde innovators at Design Miami. And a communal studio space in Manhattan provides a new template for how designers can work, both together and apart.

In the six years since Instagram burst into the App Store, the social-networking site for the visually oriented has become the clickbait of choice for interior designers—Bunny Williams has 129,000 followers—and, for young decorators especially, a source of new clients as well. “I’ve met so many people on Instagram,” says Mark D. Sikes, whose preppy, all-American style has earned him 75,500 fans. “It’s less polished than a professionally produced design portfolio, but it puts you literally into the hands of the public, showing them who you are and what you love.” Here, 10 design firms talk about the power (and pitfalls) of Instagram.

The 16 Biggest HGTV Scandals Of All Time

The 16 Biggest HGTV Scandals Of All Time

So much drama in the HGTV.

Even if you’ve been living under a rock, you probably still know all about Home and Garden Television. (It’s the network has made you jealous of your best friend’s under-rock home because it’s 4 square feet larger and has a deck.)

Better known by its popular acronym HGTV, the cable channel runs a number of addictive shows where perky hosts turn not-so-great properties into more habitable homes. You know you’ve got a Pinterest board full of their best tips!

It’s important to keep up with the home and decor trends, after all. And you know what else it’s important to keep up with!? The scandals that surround the hugely popular station. Here are some of the most memorable from HGTV’s history — drama that even a few coats of paint can’t cover up.

1. When “Flip or Flop”‘s Tarek and Christina El Moussa split after some serious drama. The couple announced their split with a statement to People magazine Dec. 12, stating that they had faced “challenges” in their marriage, and in particular citing an “unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago” as the big issue. TMZ offered up more details on that “misunderstanding,” describing it as “a scary incident involving guns and a feared suicide attempt.” After a big fight, police were called to the couple’s home and saw Tarek running from the property with a gun (Christina also fled the house crying). After being found by police, Tarek explained he had gone out with his gun to “blow off some steam.”

2. And when one of the “Property Brothers” got in a bar brawl. Jonathan Scott, one of the esteemed Property Bros, got into a bar fight at a North Dakota last June and reportedly had to be dragged from the premises. The drinking establishment was apparently closed at the time, and Jonathan and his crew got upset when their drinks were taken away… fast-forward to the bar’s bouncer allegedly having Scott in a headlock and the TV star calling 911 to report that he’d been assaulted.

At the end of the day, TMZ’s video of the altercation proved not to be enough to get the Property Bro et al in trouble, and charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence.

3. When a “Love It or List It” home was maybe destroyed. A North Carolina couple filed a lawsuit in April against the production company behind “Love it or List It,” claiming their home was left “irreparably damaged” after the show filmed. The Miami Herald reported that Deena Murphy and Timothy Sullivan asked the production company to clean up the shoddy work of the construction company hired to work on the couple’s house. Apparently they left the place in major disarray, with low-grade carpet, ruined floors and windows painted shut.

4. When it was revealed that “House Hunters” is a lie. When former “House Hunters” participant Bobi Jensen flat-out called the show a sham, plenty of people were likely surprised, then thought, “Oh yeah. That makes a lot of sense.” In a now-infamous 2012 post on the Hooked on Houses blog, Jensen shared that HGTV producers didn’t like her initial plan to remodel her current home so she could rent it out. They basically told her that the episode would be about her family’s desperation for more square footage instead. They also forced Jensen to buy the new house before the episode aired, and the houses they toured on the show belonged to family friends.
