Native Plants & Cacti
in the Desert Southwest Garden

The plants on this page are either native to the Southwest desert or can be found growing wild in arroyos. Very heat and drought tolerant, as they would have to be in order to survive in the desert. There are many more plants that will do well in a Xeriscape setting and they can be found in Southwest Shrubs. More will be added to this page, so check back often.
