There are many beautiful foliage plants that can be used in waterwise lawns. Here are some examples:

  1. Blue fescue (Festuca glauca): This grass-like plant has beautiful blue-green foliage that adds color and texture to any lawn. It requires very little water and is very drought-tolerant.

  2. Sedum (Sedum spp.): These succulent plants come in a variety of colors and textures and are great for adding interest to a waterwise lawn. They are also very drought-tolerant and require minimal watering.

  3. Silver bush lupine (Lupinus albifrons): This native California plant has silvery-green foliage and beautiful blue-purple flowers that bloom in the spring. It is very drought-tolerant and can thrive in sandy or rocky soil.

  4. Purple fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum'): This ornamental grass has striking purple foliage and produces fluffy, pinkish-purple flowers in the summer. It is drought-tolerant and can add a pop of color to any waterwise lawn.

  5. Yucca (Yucca spp.): These spiky plants have long, sword-like leaves that add texture to any lawn. They are very drought-tolerant and can tolerate a wide range of soil types.

  6. California poppy (Eschscholzia californica): This native California plant has beautiful orange or yellow flowers and feathery, gray-green foliage. It is very drought-tolerant and can add a splash of color to a waterwise lawn.

These are just a few examples of beautiful foliage plants that can thrive in a waterwise lawn. Be sure to choose plants that are native to your area and that have low water requirements for the best results.
