Re: Interesting new resource and books


xeriscape gardening is great - especially when it doesn't rain from
Memorial Day until after Labor Day most years. Trouble is we have the
occasional wet winter and spring which can mess that up. That's how I
lost all my agastaches. Too bad - pretty, fragrant and hummers love
them!!
