Understanding Santa Fe's Desert Vegetation
Understanding Santa Fe's Desert Vegetation is a working draft list of plants that can reasonably be expected to grow in the Santa Fe area, given the proper siting and care. Some of these plants have limited availability, though supplies are increasing. There are others that might grow equally well here, but they have been excluded at this time due to their even more limited availability.
This list is not intended to be used to limit plant selections, but to serve as a guide for those who want to know more about reasonable choices for this area. For those who wish to experiement with plants not listed here, we urge you to find out all you can about the plant's expected hardiness, cultural requirements and potential problems.
