Desert Peach (Prunus)
Blooming in mid-spring, the shrubby Desert Peach (Prunus andersonii) perfumes the garden with its showy pink flowers, attracting bees and butterflies. Small oval leaves occur in clusters along the branches. The flowers are followed by numerous dime-sized peaches that are attractive to birds and wildlife, though not edible for humans. Desert Peach is a rarely grown, but very desirable, long-lived Western native shrub for the xeric garden.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
