David’s Dependable Desert Plant Collection represents a nice array of evergreen shrubs, succulents, and perennials that thrive in dry, hot western or Great Plains growing conditions. The collection featuring pollinator-friendly flowers and bird-friendly habitat for a beautiful and beneficial garden. A native shrub from the southwestern US, Littleleaf Mountain Mahogany features attractive silvery evergreen foliage for year-round interest and bird habitat (5-6' tall x 4-5' wide). New-Mexico native Green’s Beargrass has attractive evergreen foliage and provides a graceful grass-like form in the landscape (30-36" tall x 36-48" wide). Banana Yucca is a handsome southwestern native species with rosettes of stout olive-green leaves and big spikes of showy ivory flowers in late spring (15-18" tall + 2-3' flower spikes x 4-6' wide). Creeping Shrubby Ice Plant is a vigorous evergreen groundcover with succulent blue-green leaves and an explosion of shimmering fuchsia-pink flowers in late spring through early summer (3" tall x 12" wide).
Having proven their durability over time in David Salman’s own garden, these plants are resilient in difficult growing conditions and have long lifespans – a wise investment for any garden! Plant them together as the foundation of a new waterwise landscape design, or scatter them into your existing xeriscape to enhance with added texture and year-round visual interest.
