Choosing attractive landscaping for your Camelot Homes luxury estate is one of the joys of living in the Sonoran Desert. Our southwestern climate provides a wide variety of colorful options that are truly amazing and hardy enough for our unique weather conditions. Here are some flowering plants, trees, and shrubs to consider:
The Anacacho Orchid Tree
This attractive plant blossoms with tiny white or pink buds and soars to approximately 8-feet tall and 4-feet wide. It’s really more of a flowering shrub than a towering tree. But, regardless, it’s a drought-resistant plant that provides a bit of color to any landscape. It also thrives in both direct sunlight and more shaded locations around the yard, so there is versatility when it comes to planting.
The Firecracker Penstemon
This flowering plant has a rather unique feature. Its bright red and orange blooms attract local hummingbirds in huge numbers. The Firecracker Penstemon is an evergreen plant, with deep green foliage that can grow up to 2-feet tall and 2-feet wide. It also grows very well as a potted plant, making it an appealing choice for poolside decks and outdoor living spaces.
The Angelita Daisy
Drought-resistant and sturdy, this plant blooms from spring to fall with smaller blossoms that are usually yellow in color. The Angelita Daisy is referred to as a clumping evergreen. At its base, it has the appearance of a big cluster of green grass. As it matures, long stems of flowers occasionally pop outward and upward towards the sun. The Angelita is a terrific ground cover plant for your luxury estate because it can expand to approximately 18-inches wide and up to 12-inches tall.
The Yellow Dot Wedelia Trilobata
The Yellow Dot certainly lives up to its name. It’s a fast growing evergreen that blooms from spring to fall with tiny, yellow, daisy-like flowers. It’s a popular choice among professional landscape architects in Arizona due to its ability to fight back after a sudden winter frost. In most cases, you can simply trim away the frost damage, and the Yellow Dot Wedelia Trilobata will bounce right back to the peak health in no time.
As you well know, living in Scottsdale is like no other place on earth. We have the most impressive scenery filled with a wide variety of flowering plants that flourish here in the Grand Canyon State. And our Camelot Homes communities are located amidst breathtaking, natural surroundings so there are countless opportunities for beauty at every turn.
