thanks for the great link, am sure you did alot of research to compile this list, since unfortunattly, we dont have enough documented information about Landscaping in UAE
a quick question, did you, (or anyone) had experiance with Russelia juncea (firecracker plant) in UAE? how well does it hold up in the summer extreme? I plan to plant it in a location, where it would look great imo, but that spot recives direct sunlight from 10am until pretty much sunset, will no casted shadows. will the plant retain its looks? or will the afternoon direct sun too much for it? i know it loves sunlight, but will it do well without any casted shadows?
Thanks alot !
I must question this list and warn that more careful site research must be done. The trees, most obviously in question from this list include:
Albizzia julibrissin (Albizzia lebbek yes but julibrissin, no)
This is not a list of 'cast iron' trees that can b successfully planted anywhere in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
Please visit these places and observe the successful street and garden trees to make your plant list. Same for shrubs. Anything short of that is a disservice to the profession of Landscape Architecture.
Kind regards to all.
