Regional Plant List

Introduction The Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition (SNRPC) is pleased to present this list of plants that can be adapted to our desert environment in the Las Vegas area for use in new developments and in retrofits to existing developments. It was created by members of the SNRPC’s Regional Urban Forestry Working Group in conjunction with local experts including arborists, horticulturists, and urban foresters. Much of the work that went into the creation of this list was built on the foundations of excellent local resources such as the Nevada Division of Forestry’s 2007 Cleaner Air, Tree by Tree and the 2005 Centennial edition of Trees for Tomorrow, a project of the High Desert Resource Conservation & Development Council. Both projects were made possible by grants from the Nevada Division of Forestry and the United States Forest Service. The intent of this list is to provide a single, region-wide reference for landscape designers, architects and developers to select appropriate plants when designing their projects in the Las Vegas area. In addition, it is a tool for those who review those projects—such as city planners—to determine if those plants meet applicable codes and ordinances. In short—right plant, right place. This list is not intended to be a list of the only plants allowed in the region, nor is it intended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive list of all desert-appropriate plants. In addition, it is not intended to restrict what plants residents choose to plant in their yards. Rather, we hope that this list will help residents and developers make informed decisions about which plants to choose. How to Use the List The list is divided between trees and other plants, including shrubs, groundcovers, vines, succulents and perennials. It is sorted alphabetically by botanical name and includes the common names of the plants. There are several columns of attributes that can be used to determine which plants are appropriate to use in specific situations. For example, an out-of-state landscape architect is looking to select a Mojave native shrub that can act as a screen or hedge, but is thornless and is highly drought tolerant. A quick look down the attributes reveal a couple of recommendations in Asclepias subulata “desert milkweed” and Foresteria pubescens (neomexicana) “desert olive,” a.k.a. “New Mexico privet.” In another example, a city planner is reviewing a development application that shows an Arbutus unedo “strawberry tree” proposed as a tree in a parking lot diamond. A quick review of the tree list reveals that this small tree is not appropriate as a parking lot tree, and the planner is able to recommend several other species that will serve that purpose. Process for Review and Amendment The SNRPC Plant List is intended to be a living document and will therefore be open to periodic review and amendment. To that end, the SNRPC Planning Directors shall review the list on an annual basis with input from local plant experts as needed. Any requests to add or delete plants from the list must be submitted to the SNRPC secretary in writing. The request shall include the following information at a minimum: the applicant’s name and contact information, the botanical and common name(s) of the plant(s) to be considered, reasons for the plant(s) to be considered, and any supporting documentation. For new plants, supporting documentation shall include the plants’ attributes as well as information regarding the plants’ history and performance in similar climates. Supporting documentation must be verified by a certified arborist or horticulturist.
