(Smooth Desert Spoon, Smooth Sotol)

The fine wiry leaves of this incredible desert plant create such a sculptural look they are coveted by modern landscape designers. Smooth sotal is native to the dry brushy hillsides and arroyos of northeastern Mexico. Its dense rosette of foliage is stemless but very mature specimens develop a stout trunk-like base, though this is rarely seen in cultivated landscapes.

This is an annual bloomer that sends up a very tall spike of flowers from its center topped with loads of small flowers that...

(Green Desert Spoon, Sotol)

This genus of 18 semi-succulent species is little known outside the desert Southwest. These truly striking plants are native to the southern United States and Mexico, closely resembling both yuccas and agaves. They are found in very arid lands, along dry washes and on rocky hillsides where soils are porous and extremely well drained. In their region of origin no rain may fall for ten months or more, and these plants have adapted to surviving such extended drought.

(Wheeler's Sotol)

The beautiful long, flattened, icy blue leaves of Wheeler's sotol form a magnificent rosette. This desert plant is native to Arizona and New Mexico, extending south into parts of arid northern Mexico. Its pointed, ribbon like leaves are edged with small curved teeth, creating a formidable deterrent to browsing wildlife. As it matures, the rosette develops a dense trunk-like base.

This annual bloomer sends up very tall flower spikes from its center topped with loads of small flowers that cover...

Blooms of Bressingham

(Hybrid Ice Plant, Ice Plant)

The surprisingly hardy iceplant, Lavender Ice®, offers cool looks to garden hot spots in southern and northern gardens alike, though its hardiness depends largely on good winter drainage. (Cold wet ground will cause root rot and death, so it must be relegated to elevated or sloping ground with porous well-drained soil.) This Plant Select® introduction was discovered as a sport of the popular Delosperma Table Mountain® and boasts starry pale lavender flowers with darker halos at the centers....

(Ice Plant, White Nugget Ice Plant)

The pure white-flowered 'White Nugget' is heavy-blooming and cold hardy. This tough, drought tolerant succulent was discovered in 1996 by Kelly Grummons at Paulino Gardens of Denver, Colorado and is distinguished by its low compact habit, glassy bright green succulent leaves and small snow white daisy-like flowers. Blooming occurs from spring through summer and flowers may sporadically appear up to frost.

Hot, sunny locations with average, well-drained soil are ideal. Allow plants to completely...

(Hardy Yellow Ice Plant)

The succulent, angular foliage of hardy yellow iceplant forms beautiful lush green carpets. For many weeks in late spring or early summer, it becomes covered with lemon yellow daisy-like flowers that are highly attractive to bees. These open in the morning and close in the afternoon, with new blossoms emerging each day.

This native of eastern South Africa naturally inhabits rocky screes on mountainsides where conditions are both cold and dry. So, sunny locations with average to poor, sharply...
