|It's wonderful to see that so many of the top 50 plants have red or orange blooms. I've always been biased against xeriscaping because it looks so boring. The xeric gardens in my county tend to have flowers of only two colors: grayish-mauve and mauvish-gray.|

|I know exactly what you mean, Zuzu. |
Another one that should have been on the list is Firebush (Hamelia patens)
It's a Texas SuperStar and incredibly drought tolerant, with beautiful firey red blooms.

|That Hamelia's really nice, Dave, and it has such a beautiful shape in your multi-plant photo.|

|It always does make the nicest round shape, all on its own with zero maintenance by me.|
