What landscaping plants work best in climate zone 11?
Thanks for writing. There are lots of beautiful, low-water plants that thrive in the Nevada climate. Some of the first plants that come to mind are Gaura, Kniphofia, Salvia, thyme, rosemary, California poppy, Gazania, Penstemon, Yucca, Hesperaloe, lavender, and Sedum.
Look for these and other great plants at your local garden center or nursery.
