In many cases, our customers will want to know a few facts about a plant before making a purchase. Most important is the maintenance of the product. However, if you are building a landscape, you will want to know where the bare spots will be in winter and what is going to explode in size.

Quick Reference:

annual - living for a year or lesss; must grow back from seed.

caliche - a hardened deposit of calcium carbonate. This calcium carbonate cements together other materials, including gravel, sand, clay, and silt. Caliche is generally light colored but can range from white to light pink to reddish-brown, depending on the impurities present. ©2008 Wikipedia.org

deciduous - means that the leaves will shed each year.

drupe - a fruit in which an outer fleshy part surrounds a shell (the pit or stone) of hardened endocarp with a seed inside. ©2008 Wikipedia.org

evergreen - the tree or shrub keeps its leaves year round.

herbaceous - a plant that has leaves and stems that die down at the end of the growing season to the soil level. A herbaceous plant may be annual, biennial or perennial. ©2008 Wikipedia.org

loam - composed of sand, silt, and clay in relatively even concentration (about 40-40-20% concentration respectively), considered ideal for gardening and agricultural uses. Loam soils generally contain more nutrients and humus than sandy soils, have better infiltration and drainage than silty soils, and are easier to till than clay soils. Loams are gritty, moist, and retain water easily. ©2008 Wikipedia.org

perennial - lasting for several years to a lifetime.

succulent - plants having thick, fleshy stems good for storing water for long periods of time.

xeriscape - a type of landscape which requires little to no water or other maintenance.
