Desert flower landscaping is the perfect way to bring the colors and vibrancy of the desert right into your own backyard. Desert landscaping can range from a small plot of land designed to grow colorful flowers or vegetables to an extensive landscape comprised of desert landscaping plants. Many people are opting for a desert landscaping project in their yard to add a touch of color and excitement. One of the most popular desert landscaping flowers are the cacti. Cacti have always been used as desert landscaping plants since ancient times, growing wild across the Middle East and Africa.

Not only do you have the option of an abundant display of flowers in your desert flower landscape, you also have the option to create a desert landscaping design that does not rely on flowers. In fact, you have a lot of options to make your flower garden a desert garden without relying on flowers. All you have to do is to think outside the box. You can use sand to create a feature where you can grow tall grass or create a small depression by piling up sand and compacting it. This will help create a perfect habitat for many desert flowers such as the cactus flower, zinnias, and rhododendrons.
If you do not want to use flowerbeds, you might also want to try something different in your desert flower garden. Pools can be created using either desert soil or river rock. To make your own natural looking pool or pond, you can line the bottom of a shallow dish with river rock or sand. This will help create a unique and interesting desert flower garden feature. Ponds are also easy to create since they require only minimal gardening know-how. To make a beautiful pond, you only need a few simple items such as a small pond kit, some river rocks, pebbles and water.
The best part about desert flower gardens is that you can plant just about any type of flower in them. There is no limitation as far as flower types are concerned. However, you should consider the season that you are going to plant your desert flower garden so that you can choose flowers that will bloom during those times. One flower that you can plant anytime is the chickweed.
Chickweed is a delicate little flower that grows in mostly desert regions. They are very beautiful to look at and are excellent choices for desert flower gardens. If you have an area that is dry all year round, then you can grow chickweed all year round as well. Another great flower you can plant is the desert sage. A desert sage requires less attention than other desert flowers, but they are still very beautiful to look at.
You can also choose to plant ocotillo and desert sage, if you are planning on creating a flower garden in an area that gets a lot of precipitation. Ocotillo is great for both the desert flower garden and for your landscaping design because it is relatively drought resistant. The trick to planting ocotillo is to be sure that it is planted in a healthy area where it can get plenty of sunlight. When you are done planting ocotillo, you can be sure that the little flower garden is going to start growing!
One more desert flower that you may want to consider planting in your desert flower landscaping design is the pink sage. This is also a very pretty flower that is very easy to take care of. All you need to do is water it when it gets too dry and you will have a nice pink sage flower garden growing year around.
