We had two peach trees that gave wonderfully for 15 or so years. Then they got too old and we had them removed. Likely going to replace them. You have to be careful in Las Vegas to get varieties that need low chill times. Many peaches will not do well here as there is too little chill. Talk to a good nursery or a master gardener. We have an Apricot that still does well though now 25 years old and may not last more. We have an orange that does fine. And my favorite is a potted Kumquat which we have been growing for 10 years.
We have an Apple but it has gotten old and we keep it because it looks nice. Not much fruit.

I didn't know apples, oranges, and peaches (sort of) could grow here. I wonder if the peaches would do better in the higher elevations of Summerlin for the chill factor, since it is a bit colder up there. I have also heard that almond trees do well here. Or maybe it was pecan. Some sort or nut

I only plant things that don't need covering up in winter.

Fig trees grow like mad here. Make sure to plant it far from a wall or the house!

There are some plants that actually thrive in the colder weather, and don't do well in the summer. I planted a Germander last Spring and it looked sickly all the thru the summer, and I almost pulled it up, and when it got colder, we're talking freezing weather, it took off like a rocket with beautiful purple flowers. I've had other plants that did likewise.

My neighbor's house had a rosebush that hadn't been watered in years while the house was empty. As soon as he moved in and turned the irrigation on, it came back to life.

He's been asking me if I want it, because he and his GF hate it, but are too lazy to dig it up. LOL I told him even if I dig it up, it may well grow back.

I have "Bells of Fire" and some Mexican Petunias, and an Agave. I haven't killed any of them yet and I definitely don't have a green thumb.

The Mexican Petunias are indestructible. You can cut them all the way to the ground and they will grow back. You can forget to water them until they dry up and they will grow back. I have the variety that doesn't seed, as apparently they can be invasive.
