Answer: Hope you have a large planting area! Here are my favorite drought tolerant plants:
Mexican sage. It has long spikes with lavender-purple flowers. The hummingbirds love them, and you hardly have to water them at all. And, if you get a start, you can plant it and it will just keep growing, not stopped at all by transplanting. It gets rather large -- say 5 feet by 5 feet. But just cut it back, and it is blooming again within a few weeks.
Best wishes with your beautiful new garden!
