Imagine what characteristics you would want in the perfect shrub. How about one that blooms throughout the year, loves hot temperatures but can handle cooler ones, all while needing no pruning? Would you add one to your landscape? Well, imagine no longer, because there is a shrub that has all of these characteristics and one other — drought tolerance. Blue Bells is the latest of a string of plants adapted to arid conditions that come to us from Australia. Not only do they add beauty to our landscapes, but they also thrive in desert gardens throughout the United States.
