FWIW

Whether I am planting a tree, bush, or flower... I always found it most advantageous to plant it in the fall...

Angelita daisies could be good. Those are tough little plants.

I'd stay away from Moon Valley Nurseries. They are very expensive and aren't straightforward in their dealings, in our experience. We've got one less than a mile from our house and I wouldn't ever go to them.
We've liked dealing with A&P Nurseries in the east valley.

if you know what you are doing, and dont mind overpaying alot, moon valley is a good place; lots of variety, lots of healthy stuff, and lots of large plants/trees/bushes; however they are 2-3 times more expensive than the competition, and, will feed you alot of BS if you dont know what you are doing..

I lived in AZ and NV and I love greenery and beautiful plants and flowers. That was one of the main reason we relocated to the Southeast. When I was in the Southwest I had great success with lantanas but they are poisonous to dogs (probably cats also) so be really careful. They go dormant and look a little bare in the winter but they still have some color to them.

Society garlic is another really pretty green plant that I had in direct sun all day with good results. They stay green all year and have lovely purple flowers for most of the year. They have an odor that isn't appealing but it's said to keep rabbits at bay. Bottlebrush is another one that did well in direct sun.

ASU or the community college will have information and maybe some classes you can take to learn about the desert landscape. As another poster said, you have to plant at the correct time of year. I went through a lot of what you're now going through. It was painful seeing the plants die and like you, I kept buying more every time I went to HD.

Good luck with your plantings and make sure to keep tabs on your irrigation system. They can get disturbed easily especially if you have critters roaming around at night in your area.

It’s the same people that insist on planting grass, and resist desert scape.
