Bee's Bliss Ground Cover. The front cover of Warrés book Beekeeping for All Northern Bee Books 2007 shows a clump of snowdrops in front of one of my hives set up in order to illustrate its various parts. It has low water needs and tolerates drought well.
You can plant this drought-tolerant low-maintenance ground cover at the edge of a rock garden or other space and more or less forget about it except for occasional watering during the summertime. I like to plant one next to my trees to. Bees bliss needs little to no water once established in most of California.
