The Q&A Archives: Resource for Gardening in the Southwest (AZ)

Question: What is a good source for information on colorful small low mainteance garden in the Tucson area. I am a new resident and am more familiar with gardening in a zone 5 environment in the northeast. I will only be a part time resident so low maintenance is a must. Evelyn H. George Tucson, AZ

Answer: A good resource book for you would be "Taylor's Guide to Gardening in the Southwest", published by Houghton Mifflin. You might want to try perennial plants such as blackfoot daisy, iris, daylilies, larkspur, or yarrow. Native plants such as cactus and yucca would also be good choices.
