Heat tolerant landscape plants for Phoenix Arizona

that can handle the kind of oven created by reflected heat. An extreme reflected heat environment exists
when a plant is growing within a few feet of a white wall in Southern or Western exposure. In June in Phoenix,
temperatures in this situation can easily top 130 degrees F. Listed below are plants that actually do well
and look good in reflected heat.
