Desert plants have found a place in modern home and garden design. There are many plants in the desert that can survive in a xeriscape garden or even in a glass terrarium. The term xeriscape is derived from the Greek word xeros, which means “dry,” and is a form of landscaping that conserves water through the use of native plants. Thus, desert plants have become popular for landscaping because they are easy to take care of due to their drought-tolerant capabilities.

  • Some of the desert plants that do so well in xeriscapes are adaptable to landscapes that get more water, and some are even more striking with a bit of water. However, some will rot if watered, even if just a little. (That is why no one grows Joshua tree here!)
