There is a lot of discussion about reduced water use and while water conservation is good it is not to be construed with “don’t plant anything”. There are a lot of wonderful plants that are very low water use and still put on quite a show. Trees provide shade, which makes our environment more enjoyable, while cacti provide beautiful colors and amazing textures. Drought tolerant shrubs provide screening and habitat for wildlife which is always a treat to watch.

Tohono Chul is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to enrich people’s lives by connecting them with the wonders of nature, art, and culture in the Sonoran Desert region and inspiring wise stewardship of the natural world. For more information visit or call 520-742-6455.
