How can you have iris blooming in August?
I had to look up xeriscape . . . so how were these planted so as not to need watering?
I know, right? The desert willow flower always reminds me of orchids. Now they’ll remind me of irises too.
From arborday.org: Desert-Willow should be grown in full sun and is extremely drought-tolerant. While the trees will grow better with adequate moisture, they will not tolerate over-watering.
I had no idea the desert willow looked so much like a lily. They aren’t even related.
I don’t remember ever seeing one until moving to New Mexico. They bloom for several weeks mid-summer and give such a beautiful splash of color!
So gorgeous flowers!
Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
