This just in, guys: Native desert plants are so much more than prickly cacti that resemble enraged Pokemon characters. Need proof? Get yourself to the Fall Plant Sale at Desert Botanical Garden, 1201 North Galvin Parkway. Set up in the parking lot, the sale will feature an array of yard-ready specimens ranging from delicately floral to spiky cousins of Pinhead. Better still, on hand at the event are experts who can help you plan how to care for your selections — in hopes that you avoid both unwanted spines in your hands and a garden full of shriveled stuff. Admission is free to the public, and hours on Sunday, October 16, are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visit www.dbg.org or call 480-941-1225 for details.
