PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
If you want the plants that actually grow in the Sonoran desert (Phoenix, Tucson and south into Sonora, Mexico) in your yard, this is the book to have. It gives a lot of complete information and the pictures make it useful as a plant ID guide out in the desert itself. Ms. Mielke (pronounced 'Milky') also has suggestions of how to use the plant in a landscape situation, which can be helpful - your only problem then will be actually finding a place that supplies the plant.
