To keep our garden inspiration flowing, I will post pictures of flowers, trees and other plants that I have found pretty and/or interesting for one reason or another. Many of the pictures will be of drought-tolerant or xeriscape plants because I live and grow in the Sonoran Desert.
I hope these photographs stimulate your creativity and keep you enthusiastic about the wonderful world of horticulture. Please feel free to share your thoughts with me by leaving a comment below.
The Maricopa County Master Gardener Tour, Real Gardens for Real People, was held at the end of March and there were many beautiful flowers, vegetables and assorted plants on display.
Some people think that only cactus and succulents can be grown in the Phoenix, AZ area, but we can grow almost everything that can be grown in the more moderate climates as long as care is taken. Below are pictures of Hollyhocks which feel right at home in the Sonoran Desert Gardens.
Of course there are some plants which cannot be grown in the Sonoran Desert and the trick is to determine which plants will work in a specific area!
