Jade plant outdoors
Can a jade plant thrive outdoors in Arizona where summer temps can reach 115 degrees during the day? My garden is drip irrigated.

It has the potential to survive but may not always thrive. Jades exposed to extremely hot temperatures can experience heat stress, reduced growth, sunburn, shedding leaves, etc. If you were to pursue a jade, I would recommend perhaps one in a container that you could move to shadier locales if needed.
