Drought/Wind Resistant Potted Plants - Knowledgebase Question

Name: Jennifer Jewell
Desert Hot Springs, CA (Zone 9B)
Question by j3jewell

I'm new to the southern CA area (VERY windy here and the back yard is mostly sunny) and have a black thumb...would like to try my hand at growing some potted plants. Don't want to introduce any plants that are NOT native to this area. Any suggestions for low-maintenance, drought and wind resistant plants? They'll be in a courtyard (house is U-shaped) that is mostly sunny.

Thanks for any help/information you can provide.
