Description

Bask in the yin-yang balance provided by the native Colorado Oasis garden. The garden’s unique design draws inspiration from the canyons found along the Colorado Front Range! Warm-toned blooms harmonize with cool-toned blooms mirroring the sunny and shady walls of a canyon. The Blue Grama Grass and Switchgrass provide texture and movement, reminiscent of a river meandering through the canyon bottom. Colorado Oasis covers 60 sq. ft. and features 15 native, xeric perennials!

What To Expect

  • Our xeric gardens feature anywhere from 14 to 30 starter plants in 4-inch pots. ** Plants will be small relative to their mature size, and they will not be in full bloom.
  • "First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap!" During the 1st and 2nd growing season, xeric plants will be in the establishment phase – requiring regular watering to encourage a deep taproot system, and not yet having reached their full size. On average, allow 3 years for your Xeriscape garden to reach full maturity then start dialing back your water usage!
  • Gardens will easily fit in a small car  - yes, we're talking Mini Cooper small - unless you ordered multiple gardens (we're not judging). One garden will come in either one or two 2 ft. x 1 ft. trays (pictured left).
**When necessary, Resource Central shall select appropriate plant substitutions.

Hardy and Thriving

I have been changing my front lawn to xeriscape over the last 6 years and have been buying GIAB since the beginning. These are the only plants that ever survive. My garden is gorgeous and I can't say enough about these gardens.
