New plants for the garden.

I went to the annual plant sale at Plantasia Cactus Garden and took home some very nice plants for a decent price.
With 5 acres of native and cold hardy unusual plants this is one of the very best desert/wildlife gardens in the west.  The owner LaMar Orton is not only knowledgeable but is also a friend to everyone that walks into the garden.  I have known LaMar for over 10 years now and he has always been kind and helpful.  I highly recommend buying plants from this top notch nursery. 
An appointment is necessary before a visit, but is well worth it.

PS. I did not take my camera with me yesterday so all pics of his gardens are from last year.

Here is just a few of the plant I took home.
three leaf sumac

"Scrub Oak"
Quercus Turbinella
