Good Guide for Desert Plants in Phoenix

Mielke BookIf you’re looking for a good all-around guide to native plants, Native Plants for Southwestern Landscapes is the one!

Author Judy Mielke is a landscape designer here in Phoenix and sometimes teaches down at the Desert Landscaper School at the Desert Botanical Garden.

Her book has a good variety of common (and some not-so-common) desert annuals, perennials, cacti, succulents, grasses, trees, shrubs, and more…plus really valuable growing information as well.

I usually take it with me to the nursery for a quick reference point. (You can also print and take one of our plant sheets if you know exactly what you’re looking for.)
