I live in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains and have a large yard to fill with plants. I started gardening this past summer and due to a difficulties in getting things to grow, I am making some major changes to the types of plants I will try to grow. As of now, I am mainly looking for mountain plants as these are most appropriate for my climate. Many of these plants and their pictures can be found here: http://www.heapspeakarboretum.com/mountainplants.htm. I can be tempted by other plants, however, if those plants are able to grow in harsh conditions (rocky acidic soil with lots of cedar/pine debris, weeds, hot dry summers, full sun or mostly shade plants, freezing/snowy winters, non-nutritive soil), AND survive underground rodents and above-ground attack by raccoons and birds and who knows what else. I prefer perennials- zona 8a. Finally, I am cutting back on planting annual fruits and veggies this year and will be dedicating more space to the mountain plants, a few non-mountain favorite flowers, perennial vegetables and fruit/nut trees and bushes. Because I will have less space for annual vegetables, I am going to stick with planting just heirlooms because I have found these much tastier. I am hoping all of this will make my garden lower-maintenance in the long run.
