  • 1. WELCOME TO garden Xeriscape refers to landscaping with water conservation in mind. It can be achieved by incorporating seven basic principles. By adopting these techniques you can create an attractive, diverse and sustainable landscape that uses less water. The City of Penticton Xeriscape Garden displays many plants and plant combinations to inspire you, and includes many plants indigenous to the Okanagan’s dry climate. It is comprised of three distinct planting areas of similar water usage, designated in the plan by three distinct colour codes. The Demonstration Garden provides examples of how indigenous and non- indigenous drought-tolerant plants can be combined to create a water-wise landscape on a typical urban property. Explore the Xeriscape Garden and refer to this guide for: • Seven Principles of Xeriscape • a descriptive list of 40 Top Plants • the Xeriscape Garden planting plan • complete plant list including perennials, shrubs and trees, ornamental grasses and bulbs The Xeriscape Garden is located Okanagan Lake in Marina Way Park, east of the a Way Marin Penticton Art Gallery. ore Lakesh Main inster Westm Eckha rd The garden was planted in 2007. t*Xeri (rhymes with terra) is from the Greek word “xeros”, for dry.

How to use this mapThis Garden is comprised of three distinct planting areas of similar water use/irrigation as follows: ■ very low ■ low ■ low to moderate, designated by three distinct colour codes.All plants are identified with both botanical and common name, and cross-referenced by location. Use the number codes to locate each plant on the plan. 1

Representing a broad spectrum of reliableperformers, their colour, form and textures provide a palette to guide and inspire you in your plantings. Smart choices for water-wisegardening, you can depend on them to be readily available in local nurseries. As a bonus, your selections of indigenous plant selectionswill enhance and support our valley ecosystems.

  • 17. D the Demonstration GardenThe two plantings forming the far east sections of the Xeriscape Gardens were designed to provide examples of how indigenousand non-indigenous drought-tolerant plants can be combined to create a water-wise landscape on a typical urban property.The garden to the left (D1) has no lawn, and uses a gravel path between the planted areas. The garden to the right (D2) includesa small lawn of EnviroTurf TM, a mix of drought-tolerant species that form a turf-like surface. In both gardens, plants are chosenand placed to provide features of privacy, year-round interest, and a variety of size, shape, texture, and colour.location Botanical name • common Name location Botanical name • common NameD1 Juniperus scopulorum ‘Blue Haven’ • Blue Haven Juniper D39 Chasmanthium latifolium • Northern Sea OatsD2 Mahonia aquifolium • Oregon Grape D40 Schizachyrum scoparium • Little BluestemD3 Amelanchier x grandiflora ‘Autumn Brilliance’ • Saskatoon D41 Rosa glauca • Red Leaf RoseD4 Ribes cereum • Wax Currant D42 Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ • Summer Snowflake ViburnumD5 Lavandula angustifolia ‘Munstead’ • Munstead English Lavender D43 Aster novi-belgii • Michaelmas DaisyD6 Achillea tomentosa ‘Moonshine’ • Moonshine Yarrow D44 Buddleia davidii • Butterfly BushD7 Philadelphus lewisii • Lewis’ Mock Orange D45 Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Overdam’ • Variegated Reed GrassD8 Syringa patula ‘Miss Kim’ • Miss Kim Lilac D46 Miscanthus sinensis var. purpurascens • Flame GrassD9 Syringa ‘Tinkerbelle’ • Tinkerbelle Dwarf Lilac D47 Hemerocallis • DaylilyD11 Sedum spectabile ‘Brilliant’ • Brilliant Sedum D48 Lavandula angustifolia ‘Munstead’ • Munstead English LavenderD12 Liatris spicata ‘Kobold’ • Kobold Blazing Star D49 Santolina chamaecyparissus var. nana • Dwarf Lavender CottonD13 Lamium • Creeping Lamium D50 Potentilla fruticosa ‘Sunset’ • Sunset PotentillaD14 Alyssum montanum ‘Mountain Gold’ • Mountain Gold Alyssum D52 Juniperus scopulorum ‘Blue Haven’ • Blue Haven JuniperD15 Penstemon fruticosus • Shrubby Penstemon D53 Sesleria heufleriana • Blue-green Moor GrassD16 Lonicera maximowiczii var. sachalinensis • Sakhalin Honeysuckle D54 Heuchera ‘Mint Frost’ • Mint Frost Coral BellsD17 Miscanthus sinensis var. purpurascens • Flame Grass D55 Koelreuteria paniculata • Goldenrain TreeD18 Juniperus sabina ‘Moor-Dense’ • Moor-Dense Juniper D56 Geranium sanguineum ‘Striatum’ • Blood-red CranesbillD19 Arctostaphylos uva-ursi • Kinnikinnick D59 Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Hameln’ • Fountain GrassD20 Iris germanica ‘Loop de Loop’ • Bearded Iris D61 Penstemon pseudospectabilis • Desert PenstemonD21 Chrysothamnus nauseosus • Common Rabbit-brush D62 Rosa x rugosa ‘Therese Bugnet’ • Therese Bugnet RoseD26 Perovskia filigran • Russian Sage D63 Artemisia x ‘Powis Castle’ • Powis Castle ArtemisiaD27 Panicum virgatum • Red Switch Grass D64 Pinus mugo ‘Mughus’ • Mugo PineD29 Hemerocallis • Daylily D66 Miscanthus sinensis var. purpurascens • Flame GrassD34 Penstemon pseudospectabilis • Desert Penstemon D67 Pinus mugo ‘Pumilio’ • Dwarf Mugo PineD35 Yucca glauca • Soapweed D69 Sedum • Showy StonecropD36 Spiraea japonica ‘Goldmound’ • Goldmound Spirea D72 Helictotrichon sempervirens • Blue Oat Grass D73 Yucca glauca • Soapweed water use/irrigation:  low to moderate 15
