We wish you a simple Christmas! More and more people seem to be yearning for, and appreciating, a much simpler, less commercial celebration. Our family has been trying to simplify Christmas for  a few years now (not easy with four children raised in the age of technological gadgets  and consumerist excess!) We want to share some of the ways our connection to native plants has helped us shape our holiday celebrations;

Just a hint, it involves Acorns, Toyon berries, Coyote bush, native cypress, wreaths, trees, stars,Wild Chaparral tea and visits to yourlocal independent garden center! Curious?
We think you will come up with many inspiring ideas of your own. Please share them with us on our FaceBook page so we can all continue to simply enjoy the holidays.

Sphaeralcea ambigua
Desert Mallow 

 Sphaeralcea ambigua 

There is nothing ambiguous about the color this sun-loving, low-water plant will bring to your garden. Desert Mallow produces spectacular orange to orange-red blooms on 1'-4' stems rising above  fuzzy gray-green foliage. Use this plant to add color to a succulent garden or in a desert border where it contrasts nicely with Apache Plume and Beargrass. With a little additional water in summer Desert Mallow will bloom almost year round. Expect height of about 3' with 2-3' spread.  Cut back hard after flowering to encourage fresh growth and a fuller appearance. 

Every purchase of our "Plant of the Month" at our retail nursery partners will generate a $0.50 donation to PLANT WITH PURPOSE to help villages in third world economies restore farms, plant trees and create local jobs.
