University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners have scheduled the November garden tour—Alternative to the Tired Ten. The tour, scheduled for November 15, is free and open to the public. Master Gardeners will discuss which plants can be used in place of the hardy, but overused, landscape plants such as red yucca, oleander, Texas Ranger, etc. The tour lasts about 1 ½ hours.

To join the tour, meet in the Courtyard located at the Lifelong Learning Center, 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. by 10 a.m. Walking shoes, water, hats, etc. are suggested. Groups (five or more people) are requested to call Ann Edmunds, program coordinator, at 702-257-5587 at least two weeks in advance.

The Demonstration Gardens contain over 500 species of desert appropriate landscape plants, including: trees, shrubs, perennials, palms, cacti and agaves. Plants are identified by botanical and common names. The grounds are open for self-guided walks on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information email or call the Master Gardener Help Desk at 702-257-5555 or visit the Facebook page.
