Growing Tropical Plants in Phoenix

  • Very thorough, well organized
  • None
The opening line on this page, "Desert Tropicals is not a nursery —we do not sell plants," gave me assurance it might be worthwhile and, sure enough, it was. The highlights of the site include an interesting potpourri of information, ranging from plant information (scientific names, common names, palm trees, succulents, herbs, and others) to hyperlinked Science News. The CDs sold on the site focus on plants of the southwest, including cacti, landscape plants and tropical gardens. For information junkies, Cactusbase Pro is also sold, which helps keep records on plants one may grow.
