The four inch potted plant is the perfect planting size for a number of reasons. One, they are easily portable and affordable. Two, you don't have to dig a very big hole for a four inch pot -- a mere four inches more for the bottom and sides. Three, you get to bond with the plant at an early age so you get to know it. Four, you get more time to really experience the plant, to watch it grow into its own -- to become its own person, as some gardeners would say. Five, you get to sit back and enjoy the plant knowing you did much of the cultivation yourself.

In a true desert environment drought can be as common as clear blue sky. Because of this, we learn that many native perennials use dormancy as a way to survive from year to year without the presence of water. We know that certain plants can remain dormant for years, then with just the right dose of water, spring forth with new, vibrant life.
Even in the desert there can be an abundance of water as with artesian springs or the deep, damp edges of long-running rivers or even the cool shady spaces of a back yard garden. In such places, dormancy is usually triggered by the change of seasons, in particular, the onset of winter when the nighttime temperatures hit below the frost mark. And then they wait...
