    Zinnias and Phlox are loving the Maryland heat! I planted the zinnia seeds just a few weeks ago.

    Butterflies are loving them!

    This world can always use more milkweed! ;)
    I definitely would've have thought so too. Sounds like you could really benefit from some night-blooming flowers, especially in a desert environment. :) This might be helpful for you: https://www.ehow.com/list_6958711_good-flowers-las-vegas.html
