This is a project I landscaped and lit in Meridian, Idaho. I have been in the industry for 22 years, but only in Indiana since 2009. We brought the high desert yuccas and a wide variety of desert type plants to the zone 6 environment in 2007 and they have been thriving ever since. We were on the cutting edge of landscaping in the treasure valley at that time. Most of the yuccas pictured are hardy to -10 and -20 degrees. The name of this project is called Saguaro Canyon (google it). It is the last large development I worked on prior to the economic recession of 2008 that brought me to Indiana. Sorry for the confusion, but I don't believe I had said that it was listed as an Indiana project.

Incidentally, I am beginning to work on bringing some of these same gems to Indiana also, where they are fully hardy. There is such a diversity of plant material available to us that the local nurseries do not provide to us. Once again, wanting to be on the cutting edge of plant variety and pushing what everyone says is "impossible".
