Care-free garden: Bullet-proof plants These aeoniums, papyrus, cordylines, kangaroo paws, and small palms need no fertilizer or pesticides—only occasional watering by a drip system and a little pruning. They also easily tolerate shifts from sun to rain.
Leucadendron discolor ‘Pom Pom’ reaches four to seven feet in height with a similar breadth. It blooms in the winter and spring and remains elegant out of bloom. Loves full sun, good drainage (sandy and rocky soils especially).
