This expansive Spanish Colonial Revival home and garden in Tucson’s foothills has been years in the making. The owners collaborated with with a great architect (Ron Robinette),interior designer (Christy Martin), and us (Scott Calhoun) early in the process. We created a bold planting plan that includes Faxon’s yuccas, deer grass, penstemons, salvias, and a rare tuberose called ‘Espresso’ shipping in from Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina. Of course, because the homeowners named their house “Casa Granada”, we included a pomegranate tree. Zona Gardens designed and planted extensive container gardens in nearly every patio nook. The containers hold mix of sturdy cacti and succulents and a few potted annuals to lend color in the cool season.
