AME’s Top 10



These plants are unique in that they can give a desert or a lush garden feel to the landscape, depending on how they are combined.  All of these plants are low water use and low maintenance.  If these plants are hit with a freeze, they can easily be pruned down to encourage re-growth from the roots and will recover quickly.  Additionally, because of their vigorous growth rate, you won’t have to buy such a large plant at the nursery or dig such a big planting hole!
