Where can I get a list of plants that will thrive or do even moderately well in a soil environment which is highly alkaline due to the well water used. We also have a hot summer climate.

There's an excellent list of plants adapted to arid climates (which generally have alkaline soil) in the Sunset Western Garden Book, under the heading 'Plants for Arid Gardens'. The book, published by Sunset, is available at most libraries and bookstores. ISBN# 0-376-03851-9
