Hello all....I'm a mostly lurker who joined last year and posted a few times. I'd love to hear about the experiences with arils, arilbreds, et al. I love the look.... but I understand that they need or at least want dry summers.
Not necessarily. Here in the desert southwest, summer is our rainy season. Sometimes we get more than half of our annual rainfall in the months of July and August. Arils and arilbreds do, however, need good drainage.
