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.
this is my first year with both bells of fire & mexican petunias - i wasn't sure if they would come back on their own or if i'd have to plant new. the frost has left them both looking quite dead. glad to know they are resilient. i'll wait to see how they behave before digging them up.

the colors are amazing & the hummingbirds LOVE both of them!

I thought my bells were dead the first winter after I planted them, but they started sprouting new leaves and flowers when the weather warmed up.

With daily irrigation, Cannabis does great here in the summer/fall.

I am truly amazed at the variety of plants you can grow successfully in Las Vegas. Roses are gorgeous! I currently live in Florida but am working on a move to the Las Vegas area. When I see all the rock and dg in the yards I wonder how difficult it is to dig into and amend. In a previous life I lived in CA and the clay was so awful I had to use a digging bar or an augur attached to a drill. Can someone tell me what it's really like digging in this "soil"? And do you have to amend the heck out of it to get plants to grow? I'm actually fascinated as to how such a variety of plants and trees grow so well. I cannot get nearly the variety to grow here in SW Florida. Thanks.
