I've been researching the types of shrubs and climbers that will grow in sand and tolerate drought conditions in the desert/garden in Dubai.
I've decided on the two climbers below, as I'm hoping the bougainvillaea cuttings will take.
Jasmine Fluminense - Arabian Jasmine
Drought tolerant and propagates well, is self seeding and fragrant.
Ipomoea Palmata - Railway Creeper
Drought tolerant and survives in poor soil. Propagates well from cuttings. Grows fast and will provide excellent coverage.
Now I've just got to find out if these plants are sold in Dubai and their cost.
