Abstract:
Dalea is a member of the family Leguminosae which includes many commonly cultivated plants used in southwestern desert landscapes. With 166 described species, it is surprising to learn that until recently Dalea has largely been neglected horticulturally. In this paper I discuss seven promising species that have been tested in landscape situations for five years. These include six shrubs and one spreading groundcover. All except the groundcover are extremely showy when at the peak of flowering. Each species is unique and all are highly recommended for landscaping in arid regions of the world.
