Foxtail agave (Agave attenuata) and Mexican bush sage (Salvia leucantha) both need protection from frost.Cover plants before nightfall. If a frosty night is forecast, cover tender plants like angel’s trumpet (Brugmansia spp.), bougainvillea, citrus, fuchsia, penstemon, salvia, succulents and tree ferns. Young plants and those that have been recently planted can be more vulnerable to frost damage than well-established ones.

Distinguishing traits. The soft, gray-green leaves range from 1 inch to 2½ inches long. The undersides of the leaves and the stems are white due to the presence of tiny white hairs.In winter, Mexican bush sage dies back to the ground if temperatures dip into the 20s (Fahrenheit). However, if pruned back to the ground in late winter, it grows back quickly, with the majority of the growth occurring in spring and summer.Though it has a somewhat rambling nature, it can be controlled by lightly pruning it once or twice during the growing season, which can stimulate additional blooms.Shown: Spiky foxtail agave (Agave attenuata) contrasts beautifully with Mexican bush sage.

7. Desert plants don't need water. A variation of this is, "I want a no-maintenance garden." Here's the truth: Even desert plants need water, and there is no such thing as a no-maintenance garden. Plants are living things, and even if a plant such as an agave requires much less water than, say, impatiens, it still needs water, particularly in the first weeks after planting or during an extended drought. So if you're a person who doesn't want to be a slave to your garden, alter your thinking from "no maintenance" to "low maintenance."More: What to Do in Your Garden Now

We like the Green plant, but do not want to get into the Cactus-family. also the autumn sage ( Salvia Greggii) could be an option for backyard slope.

Mexican sage in the background, Agave attentuata in the front - use both in spaced out groupings
