The article presents plants that can tolerate extreme weather such as drought and heavy rainfall with severe flooding. The importance of selecting plants to suit the climatic conditions of the gardens or public spaces for each region is offered. It offers some plants that can stand warm as well as temperate climates such as the Callistemon viminalis, the melaleuca leucadendra and the melaleuca thymofolia. These plants are pointed out as the best choices for the most challenging garden situations.
