Burning Bush (Dictamnus albus), a 2-3 foot shrub with flowers in white, pink, or purple.
Grape Hyacinth (Lilaceae muscari).
Purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea).
Desert Lily (Hesperocallis undulata). Multiple white flowers on a 1-4 foot spike.
Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis). Small tree with gorgeous orchid like flowers.
Desert Sand Verbena (Abronia villosa). Trailing plant with bright pink flowers.
Feather Cassia (Cassia artemisioides). Fast growing shrub with bright yellow flowers
Evening Primrose (Oenothera deltoides). 1-2 foot perennial (white, yellow)
