All plants need water to survive. However, like plants that require more water, some plants grow in a lack of water. They are the best drought tolerant plants and can live without water for a long time. Some of the plant that can tolerate the Chennai heat are as follows.
Bougainvillea is a champion in tolerating the drought. It seems to be one of the toughest shrubs that thrive on neglect in extreme and intense conditions. This colorful plant is easy to grow too.
Oleander is a tropical shrub that blooms prolifically. It produces beautiful fragrant flowers of different colors, like yellow, pink, red, white and purple. Oleander is known to adapt well to hot and dry climates and grows very well in coastal areas. It prefers full sun but doesn’t mind a few hours of shade too.
Also known as “Desert Rose,” Adenium is a tropical succulent plant that requires occasional watering. Adenium needs full sun and heat to thrive, however, it can also be grown as a houseplant in colder climates.
Most of the plants from the Euphorbia genus tolerates the scarcity of water easily and don’t require special attention. The plants from this genus are found in almost every part of the world, from short living annuals to tall perennials.
Cactuses and Succulents
Not only the cactuses and succulents need less water, but they are also low-maintenance and easy to grow. During the period of drought, these tough plants shrink and use the reserved water. There are many cacti and succulent varieties that you can choose to grow.
Much like their name suggests, these spidery plants don't even need soil to thrive, you can literally hang them in mid air, place them in a decorative vase, or prop them up on a shelf. And watering them is nearly set-and-forget. Just dunk them in water for about 2 or 3 hours every 10 days or so.
