Spring is showing itself in many of our plants. El Paso’s last frost (<32F) was a week or two ago, and our last hard freeze (<28F) may have been a month ago. We’ve had some chilly weather and lows in the upper 30’s, but quite a few 70’s, too…and no spring winds or dust storms…yet! All great for gardens.
Odd, but I’ll take it any day over the stormy NW, frigid NE, and US Midsection rollercoaster. Enjoy!
New plants are more appealing without plant primadonnas issuing edicts against them; unfounded biases scare people away. It’s best to be open in thoroughly trialing plants with potential – non-native xeric plants like this one, but especially native plants not widely-accepted. We’ll wait and see on that Eremophila…onward!
