Often under-apprciated, California native plants can surprise you with their flowers, textures, forms, and fragrances. In visiting the new California Native Garden at the South Bay Botanic Garden, you will discover that these plants can create a special place in your home landscape.
California native plants have enough variety to provide interest all year round. Sure, there is no doubt that many of them shine the most in spring and early summer but there are also many different native plant choices that show beauty and can catch your eye in fall and winter. Added to their beauty is the fact that most natives are water-conserving and sometimes only need light pruning once per year.
The Grand Opening of the New California Native Garden was held on Saturday, April 14th, 2012. For a plant list, click here.
