We are still installing hardscape and can only work on the weekends. We are in Windsor, CA and am wondering if it is too cold to plant drought resistant plants when it has already dipped to 30 degrees at night now.
Thank you!

You can plant this time of year, as long as the ground isn't frozen. Don't expect to see a lot of growth this time of year, and remember to water deeply once each week to help the root systems establish. You'll see new growth in the spring and at that time can prune away any winter damage. Drought tolerant plants need to establish their root systems before they can go without much water so if you plant now and water regularly, they should be ready to grow in the spring. Enjoy your new landscape!
