Remember my recent post from New Mexico Junior College in Hobbs? Here’s what worked out at two projects I co-designed while with a former employer, one decade ago. Photos from 2/25/14 (44F), 3/1/14 (81F, ice storm next day & high 20’s) –
Ben Alexander Student Center:
Western Heritage Museum / Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame:
Partial Plant List *:
Screwbean Mesquite or Tornillo / Prosopis pubescens, Live Oak / Quercus fusiformis
Dwarf Yaupon Holly / Ilex vomitoria ‘Nana’
Desert Candle / Dasylirion leiophyllum, Red Yucca / Hesperaloe parviflora
* I left out plants that didn’t seem to work on that project, including Autumn Sage and some flowering perennials; those are mostly no longer alive in the landscape.
