Answer: First of all, I recommend you get the book "Xeriscape Gardening: Water Conservation for the American Landscape", by Connie Elefson, et. al. (Macmillan Publishing, 1992). The plant list for your area includes these perennial flowers: desert marigold (Baileya multriadiata), Penstemon, Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia), coreopsis, sage, tansy, and California Poppy. Annuals: African daisy, Goldfield (Lasthenia glabrata), Scarlet Flax, Lupine and Owl's Clover (Orthocarpus purpurascens). I also suggest that you contact your county extension office (713-342-3034); they should have a longer list for you, or can put you in contact with local garden clubs that can offer their advice and expertise. Don't get discouraged! Hope this helps!
