Drought workshop for residential customers

The residential horticulture agents are putting on a drought workshop for the home consumer. The brochure for the seminar is : http://hillsborough.extension.ufl.edu/HomeGardening/PDFs/FFL101_2009_Flier.pdf

They are expecting about 150 people to show up. It might be a good way to do some cheap marketing. They are also looking for nurseries that have a retail portion to promote the drought tolerant plants and your business. If you would like to participate please contact me via email ststeed@ufl.edu.

Here is the list of plants:
Mimosa strigillosa Duranta erecta Helianthus debilis Yucca spp.
Zamia floridana Coreopsis spp. Tulbaghia violacea Solidago spp.
Leonotis leonurus Illicium floridanum Hydrangea quercifolia Pyschotria nervosa
Stachytarpheta jamaicensis Vitex agnus-castus Plumbago auriculata Agave spp.
Acacia spp. Pennisetum setaceum Tripsacum dactyloides Gazania
Gallardia Parkinsonia aculeata Tacoma stans Agapanthus
Thyralis Evolvulus glomeratus Hamelia patens Olea spp.

Or if you have any other plants that perform well under drought conditions please feel free to bring them.
