The Buzz

If you can't take the heat...

If you are wondering about plants that will grow in hot dry situations, take a look at our Desert Garden on the south end of our parking lot. Not only cactus but succulents, perennials, and grasses from temperate climates from around the world are represented.

The plants are labeled, so if you see something that you like it will make it easy for you to start your search. All these plants are good choices for sunny areas that have good drainage and gardeners who don’t have time to apply water on a regular schedule.
