What plants are good in outdoor pots in Las Vegas?
Just moved to Las Vegas from NY. Renting a house that has 6 nice big pots in the front courtyard with nothing planted. I'm not a gardener, but would love to plant some colorful desert plants in them.
All but two are in full sun, two are in shade - not a whole lot of room to move them.
There is a drip system and the realtor says she can look into having it turned-on/set up (I know nothing of drip systems, what they are, how they work etc.)
Anyway.. any suggestions about what to plant, when, how to care for them. Sites to check out, books to read...
will be greatly appreciated.
