It amazes me, however, how roses thrive in our desert along with lavender and rosemary. Not only are they beautiful but also give a sweet garden aroma. Sedum is another favorite of mine, a small pink and green desert thriving plant that makes a good garden filler. Combine these flowers and plants, add some red mulch, and you've created a colorful Southwest garden.
