Gifts aren’t the only ways to protect water resources this holiday season. Be water-wise when selecting holiday decorations. Here are some suggestions:
• Add some color to your holiday decorating with red salvia splendens. The plant requires little maintenance once placed in your garden after the holidays.
• Use items found around your yard and home to decorate. Palm fronds, magnolia leaves, pinecones and citrus fruit make great ingredients for centerpieces.
• Rosemary is easy to grow and makes a nice choice for holiday greenery and fills the home with a sweet fragrance.
