November’s Plant of the Month

Have you seen November’s Plant of the Month
Plant of the Month:  Dalea frutescens ‘Sierra negra’/Black Dalea

Black Dalea is a rare fall bloomer that makes for a wonderful compliment to desert landscapes.  In the fall, it is covered with masses of tiny purple flowers above its feathery, grey-green foliage.  This mounding shrub is evergreen and prefers full sun and well drained soil.  This plant is the ultimate low maintenance plant as it resents fertilizer or over watering.  Really its only requirement is a good shearing in early spring to keep a dense shape.
