Re: Some spring color in my neighborhood

Great pics!. I only planted my first boug right before I left Cali so I don't know much about them. How long do they flower? Also, oleander seem to do great there. I am planting in my sand gravel bed this year, but I'm a novice on those as well. 2 years ago it flowered awesome, last year only very lightly. It was in the same spot with the same ferts. How much do you fertilize and with what?
Love the ocotillo too. I thought they only flowered after a rain? Have you had rain recently?
