"Desert-Tropicals is designed to provide you information about plants. Our goal is to have gardening information on all the plants that one can encounter in Phoenix.  Considering that gardeners are an adventurous bunch, it represents a lot of different types of plant.  It not only covers the plants that can grow outside in the ground, but also the large number of container grown, strictly tropical plants."
