Prices are fairly good for the types used here. But we drool at the more exotic stuff from the low deserts. Best deals here are the local places as most of the big boxes continue to sell stuff that just doesn't do well here like cordylines and golden Barrell cactus, but to a lay person it looks like a soft yucca w/color and cactus with pretty thorns.
Actually, succulents are becoming less of a theme here in xeriscaping, and is evolving towards more color, long season color, and in some cases year round blooms, and trees.
Long story short, Xeriscape seems to be continually emerging here, along with the plant pallette, which is cool.
Albuquerque, actually Rio Rancho,
New Mexico. Zone 7
Annual precip about 8"
Elevation =10' shy of a mile although climate change may change that
