Drought tolerant, high pH loving, heat tolerant, low humidity....
I don't ask for much, do I?
I'm looking for any and all advice on putting in some grasses. Needless to say, Phoenix is a tough place for a lot of plants, even cacti.
Mitigating factors - these plants will be on drip irrigation, but even that will be fairly minimal. I can also put them in where they can be shaded from some of the western sun, although *any* sun here is much stronger than most other parts of the country. I can also amend our rather sandy, very basic (in terms of pH) soil, but facing facts, the water they'll get is also full of lime, so you can only take that so far. At least it is fairly well draining.
So far included on my list is Muhlenbergia capillaris 'Regal Mist' Festuca glauca 'Boulder Blue' (or any other of the blue fescues), Muhlenbergia 'Autumn Glow', Panicum virgatum 'Dallas Blues' or 'Shenandoah' and any others that you all might suggest for the blast oven I call home. = )
Thanks in advance for your time and advice!
