Garden Adventures: Palm Desert Plants

Here's a compendium (!) of plants from my walk-arounds at La Quinta Resort in the Palm Desert. All of them drought-tolerant and perfectly at home in this environment characterized by hot summers and low rainfall. All of them, except for the last (ahem). 

Agave americana, Century Plant

Fouquieria splendens, Octotillo

Opuntia, Prickly Pear

Cactus, ???

Cercidium microphyllum, Littleleaf Palo Verde

Euphorbia milii, Crown of Thorns

Bougainvillea - pruned, unpruned, mid-pruning

Lawn, and more lawn ... lawn everywhere in Palm Springs.

seasonal maintenance or planting, Geno's Garden can help!
