Re: desert garden blog

Dear Aaron, it's really sad to see a winter damage on your plants! Sorry for your harsh winter... By the way what was a minimum winter temperature?
One more question: what is an evergreen shrub on one of the pictures?

Thank you very much Tim for the tips! I'll try to pollinate next summer. I understand there won't be a result without cross pollination? My flaccida started blooming later than your hybrid did. Is there any reason to pollinate the flaccida genes hybrid with the flaccida genes? Backcrossing?
