Too Successful Plants

Some plants struggle for survival in our desert gardens, while others flourish. Angela O'Callaghan tells us more.

Mindful planting and watering can help keep desert appropriate plants from overtaking one's yard.

If you have a blank area, say 15 or 20 feet of unplanted rock mulch, consider installing Acacia redolens. With minimal attention, you'll have lush greenery. For a smaller patch of ground, find something else.
