Answer from NGA

In your gardening region, heat-loving subtropicals such as bougainvilleas and date palms thrive. Other suggestions include Mexican bird of paradise, Caesalpinia mexicana
fairy duster, Calliandra eriophylla Mexican honeysuckle, Justicia spicigera Texas ranger, Leucophyllus frutescens
feathery cassia, Senna artemisioides yellow bells, and Tecoma stans.

Several varieties of plums will produce fruit in the low desert. Santa Rosa is a good choice if you only want one tree. Some other varieties require two trees for cross-pollination. Fig are another possibility. Some peach tree varieties have a low chilling requirement and thus are adaptable to your climate.

Hope these suggestions help you plan a beautiful garden!
