|Deserts are second only to tropical rainforests in the variety of plant and animal species that live there. Desert plants have developed in various ways to get as much water as possible and to reduce water loss. Some desert plants are drought evaders and exist only as seeds until the rains come. There are also drought resisters that retain moisture or attain water from underground sources.
Desert plants are a great addition to any garden and especially for people that do not want to spend many hours maintaining them. Desert plants are not just tumbleweeds, but can be found in many colors of grey, green and silver and most have very colorful and showy blooms. The textures are unique with each plant and will bring the desert oasis to your own yard.
