Springtime in the 沙漠 southwest is a glorious time.

betway旗舰版下载对寒冷说“再见”, winter temperatures and delight in the landscape around us and it bursts into bloom.

我喜欢在每年的这个时候呆在户外, realizing that soon I will go into what I like to call ‘summer hibernation’ as the temperatures reach triple digits.

今天, I thought that I would share with you some beautiful, 现在正在开花的粉红色开花植物……

Pink fairy duster shows off its pink flowers once a year in 春天.  The rest of the year, it quietly recedes into the background until 春天 arrives again.

仙人球(仙人掌)

My favorite prickly pear has vibrant, pink flowers throughout 春天.  One of the reasons that I like beavertail prickly pear is that it stays rather small and does not become over成长n like other species can.

帕里的盆盆石

I’m a sucker for 植物s that produce flowering spikes, like Parry’s penstemon.  It has such a delicate, pink color and hummingbirds find it irresistible.

粉红色的花菱草

Did you know that the traditional, orange California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) 还有其他颜色?  我喜欢这种粉红色的.

树莓冰叶子花属

九重葛是一种很好的容器植物. All you have to do is water them deeply and then allow them to dry out before watering again.  虽然我有深, magenta bougainvillea in my own garden – I must admit that I really like the variety ‘Raspberry Ice’ which has cream-colored brachts with pink tips.

尽管传统上 a summer-bloomer, this pink gaura was already blooming in March.  It makes a great filler for container gardens in the warm season.

墨西哥月见草(Oenothera berlandieri)

Pink, cup-shaped blooms cover Mexican evening primrose in 春天.  This groundcover looks great in natural 沙漠 landscapes, 但可能是侵入性的, 所以在使用的时候要小心.
