Hibiscus and oleanders are very popular with Phoenix gardeners. When I see a hibiscus I'm tempted to cut it and put it behind my ear and pretend I'm on a tropical island. Oleanders can be found in nearly every yard and many people use them to hide the ugly concrete walls that are so prevalent here. They don't seem to care if they get watered or not regardless of how hot it may be. Both of these pretties were in my front yard at my old house.
