Jewel of the Desert Garnet Ice Plant is a low growing, tough groundcover with excelent color. These spread rapidly, are water-wise once established, and offer interest in color and texture. Can be sheared back in order to control their spill onto pavement, and their root systems can help knit and stabilize soil such as on hillsides.

Garden Majorelle, Marrakech. Designed by French artist Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s. Acquired by Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé in 1980.

Yucca; architectural, drought tolerant and tough desert plant

Yucca aloifolia 'Variegata' - spectacular in bloom, and out. Watch for the sharp spines - this is a plant that demands respect. Give it a full sun situation, lots of gravel in the soil, and stand back.
