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!
  • 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.


What Customers Say

Plant By Number Maps Make it Easy

“The selection of plants appears to be just what we wanted. It was so helpful that the layout was outlined for us and all we had to do was prep the space and plant the plants.”

Beauty in an Arid Environment

"I’ve referred about a dozen people to your website. What a wonderful way to add flowers in an arid environment and support a nonprofit. The volunteers at pickup were fantastic! Very happy to be a recipient!"
