    Bog Garden in Arizona?

    Just moved to Arizona and want to start a bog garden in my backyard. I do realize the low humidity and hot weather will prove difficult to provide a variety of plants but what plants are more forgiving of such extreme conditions?

    Thanks!

    VFTs! So long as you can keep them wet, they'll love you for all that heat. I can't remember his name here on the forum, but there was one guy by the name of Steve in AZ or NM who used to post a year or so ago and had a spectacular VFT collection. By the sound of it, they were pretty easy for him.

    Yeah, several of the warm-temperate 'dews might work; D. binata is another in that group. With plants as vigorous as D. capensis or binata you might want to put them in their own separate containers, because they'll spread out and crowd smaller plants like VFTs.
