Very occasionally small areas of my yard look close to how I want them to look. I generally go for a wild and unruly style, and this is helped by encouraging native plants that grow well, and require little or no maintenance.
Desert Senna is a native plant here in the sonoran desert and it is looking rather pretty in my yard at the moment. There is brittlebush here too, another native, although that will not flower until next spring.
I only wish the rest of my yard looked as pretty but nothing else is flowering right now.
