“Basically, the land was a desert with trees,” says interior designer Linda Warren Simon of her Mediterranean-style country house in Atotonilco, Mexico. She and her husband added fruit trees to give the property a lusher feel but kept many of the native plants. Landscape designer Manrey Silva created the cactus garden along the south side of the home.

Monocot Garden - Harnek Singh
Stone bridges cross the rocky streambed at various points, and pathways venture into a sunny garden of flowering perennials, roses, canna, native daisies, and more, with agaves and yuccas adding spiky, architecture.
Valencia Botanic Garden
This was one of the most impressive parts of the garden, with no overhanging trees to interfere with the succulent plants. This bed looked particularly good, with Yucca carnerosana (I think- no labels), a small flowering Nolina, Yucca rostrata, and Yucca filifera with Euphorbia candelabrum in the background. At the front of the bed was a snail-ravaged clump of an agave type plant with soft floppy leaves with small purple spots.
