Shrubs for the
Desert Southwest Garden

When choosing a shrub for your yard there are several things to consider:

• how much space do you have for it?
• do you have water issues?
• do you want flowers or no flowers?
• maintenance - pruning or natural shapes?
• which plants are more resistent to insects and diseases?
• do you have allergies?

These are just some of the questions you must ask yourself before heading to your local nursery or purchasing a plant online.
