    1. What variety of long-thorned bushes are you looking for? Are the Bougainvillea, Hackberry, or Pomegranate?

    1. Not sure what kind of plant that is. Can you describe the leaf and if any flowers? Just two inches thorned is not enough to see what plant you are looking for. Or do have a picture of plant you are looking for?

  1. Looking for a Arbutus Andrachne…redish bark with really green foliage. Do you carry this and if so what size/cost, etc. Thanks

    1. I am sorry, we do not carry as of yet. But there might a nursery in Apache Junction the nursery name- Tropica Mango.

  2. I’m looking for large quantities of Perlite? Everywhere I look they have like little 8 ounce bags… LOL can ya help me out?

  4. Do you ever do any programs off-site? I am the manager at McFarland State Historic Park in Florence, and I am planning programs for 2018. Someone told me they heard you give a very interesting talk on native plants. If you do go off-site, would you please tell me what programs you provide, the cost, and any details? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Susan, my name is Adel, Phil’s assistant and one of the sales gals at the nursery. I will check with Phil about talks and any other details you may need. He does many of his talks here at the nursery grounds.

  5. There many columnar cactus as you describe. Small as 3ft or little taller? Here a few 3ft and up: Golden Torch 4-5ft, mexican fence post 5-15 ft, senita 8-15 ft.

  6. We’re looking for a heat and full sun loving, relatively fast growing trellising desert vine to replace some very old, dying Jasmine vines on the east side of our Northeast patio. I have read about the Mexican flame Vine but don’t know whether it is invasive in this growing zone. Can you recommend something and do you have anyting at Avocado Nursery that might work for us? We want to plant in probably October this year. Thank you.

    1. I would recommend the tangerine beauty vine also known as Cross Vine with Orange trumpet flowers , green year round, self attaching, fast growing. 5gal $20
