From the last post, here are some great plant combos growing on the desert roadsides. I tried to group them by climate zone or elevation, all growing on natural rainfall in their zone.
A number of plants were left out, which I had photos of. There were many more common to the southwest, or to certain elevations.

One might need to adapt those plants into hotter or cooler locations than where I show them. Most or all don’t have any cute trade names or “designer” prices, but a number are worth the effort to find at those few great nurseries out there.
In fact, more than one are not that available. Even if you have to buy them in seed form, or collect from seed when ripe.

Enjoy these arid finds, but consider the groupings they make or could make – aesthetic and cultural.
See any you wish to try?
