Answer: I found a terrific website with shrub choices especially for your gardening region. It includes shrub descriptions, care, flowering times, etc. Hope you find it helpful! http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/extension/xeriscape/table...
Good luck with your garden!
Oh - I don't know if you can order black cannas from Home Depot but I know they are available online.
