Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
Drought-tolerating plants are useful for landscaping areas which do not normally receive irrigation water. They are especially adaptable to the rural home landscape because there is usually sufficient space for them to grow in areas which will not receive summer water. They can be valuable as windbreaks and screens for buildings and machinery.
