    Chinese Stonecrop (Sedum tetractinum) - Monrovia - Chinese Stonecrop (Sedum tetractinum)

    Lantana is so easy to grow. It attracts butterflies, loves sun and can tolerate drought. Good watering results in a showy and large plant. Freezes to the ground in winter but returns year after year.

    Evening Primrose: It flourishes in poor, dry soils receiving hot sun, and thrives despite drought! Eager to reseed, it quickly establishes handsome, mounded colonies just 6 to 12 inches tall that return for years of beauty! The cup-shaped blooms are blush-pink at the petal tips, shading to pure white toward the tiny yellow center. 2 inches across, they jostle one another for position atop the low-growing plant, almost hiding the foliage. And the bloom is successive waves from earlies...

    Rock cress- as you can guess from the name, is one of those plants that like tough love -- give it a hot, dry crack between some stones somewhere and it will flourish. It can cover a stacked-stone wall or rocky outcropping with beautiful blue-purple flowers. Purple rock cress usually has purple or blue flowers, but rock wall cress is more likely to bloom in white or pink.
