Periodic Rainfall

Our Periodic Rainfall displays showcase plants that aren’t normally summer dry—like Mediterranean regions—but can be dry throughout the year. Regions that receive periodic rainfall are compatible with our climate because while they tolerate summer rain, they don’t need it to survive. They’re also located more inland than their Mediterranean cousins and commonly feature chaparrals, steppes, and dry woodlands.

Selected Zones:

  • Eastern Mediterranean
  • Central Asia
  • Eastern Europe
  • South African Mountain Ranges
  • Argentina
