More Information
I am a Horticulture grad from Ontario who now lives in the southwestern desert of the US. I'm surrounded by the Sonoran wilderness and filling a 1 acre plot. I've got the backbone of the garden finished and am now looking for unusual and dramatic plants to add as specimens. I try not to supplement the water to plants except at the time of planting. Once established, the plants should be able to survive basically on 12 inches of rain, sun or shade, summer temps of 115 F and occassional freezing. COLOUR is a goal in the garden now.
