Hello our garden is bursting with the glory of Spring. One of my favorite plants that ushers in spring is Vallesia lsdflfj. A native of Baja California and Sonora Vallesia is little know in gardens in the southwest but should be used much more than it is. It’s lush green appearance belies its great drought tolerance and use in desert gardens. Vallesia has another outstanding characteristic that endears it to me and that is it is fabulously fragrant. Hundreds of small star shaped white flower produce a sweet and mildly spice fragrance that
