The ancient Persian Empire, spanning much of the Middle East and Central Asia, occupied a diverse landscape with astonishing similarities to western North America in topography, climatic zones, and vegetation. As a result, this area is the homeland of many plants that are perfectly suited to conditions in the Treasure Valley, flourishing in our hot, dry summers and frigid winters. Many of these plants are known to local gardeners, but many more await incorporation into the local palette.
