Do you ever get tired of seeing the same plants showing up in landscapes time after time?
It doesn’t matter whether you live in the desert or in more temperate climates – there are always 5 – 10 varieties of plants that are used over and over.
Even though these plants may be attractive, the fact that they are seen everywhere makes the landscapes they are in somewhat unremarkable and therefore ‘forgettable’.
As a horticulturist, I am always on the lookout for different plants to use in landscapes. Last week, I visited the Desert Botanical Garden’s Plant Sale, which is a great place to go to see the newest plant introductions along with lesser-known plants that grow in our desert climate.
In an earlier post, I shared about new plant colors available for well-known plants. Today, I thought that I would share with you some lesser-known plants that you may want to try out in your garden.
