Plants that correspond to this climate are usually resistant to high temperatures, withstand water scarcity and need long periods of sun exposure. Arid soils are ideal for growth. Although in general they do not require very special soil conditions.
To create your garden in Mediterranean areas a great way to distribute the plants is to place grass and leave a centered hole to put a group of agaves. They are beautiful plants with spiny and fleshy leaves that are arranged in rosette. For them to endure well, the soil must be well drained and there is plenty of sun. On the walls of the house, or even in very central areas, you can put yucas. They are pointed plants of high decorative value. When they bloom they leave beautiful ivory white flowers that give a very elegant air to the garden.
Tree species such as cypresses, palms and pine trees are also suitable for a Mediterranean climate. Among the palm trees it is very interesting and beautiful the phoenix palm with long green leaves and its fruits are the orange dates. Another alternative for your Mediterranean garden is the cactus because they need long periods of sun and grow in very arid soils.
