An article in the Arizona Republic speaks about Resort Gardening, which means creating an ambience for your garden where your summer plants can survive. The gardener should plant only those plants that survive in the summer like Zuni, Acoma, Tonto, Glendora White, Catawaba and Peppermint Lace. To quote Lee Ackmann, director of horticulture at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch:
When you have a situation like ours, the spa creates a little microclimate. Everything is pretty well protected.
Concisely, summer garden can actually bloom if it is well-watered and placed in a shady ambience where plants can breathe.
