California Native Gardens

As a garden designer I strive to use the right plants for the right places. The Central Valley in California is hot and dry in the summer. Natives and Mediterranean plants are the way to go!

Long blooming, drought and deer tolerant and clay friendly? Then don’t pass over our California native Clarkias because they’re “just annuals.” Why? Because they self-sow reliably, so you’ll have new volunteers every year, brand new plants that never look aged or sad. Exceptionally exuberant, “Ruby Chalice Clarkia” quickly reaches 30” x 30”, displaying a profusion of 2” cherry centered lavender-pink blooms beginning in May and lasting till midsummer and even Fall (with some water).

Knock-out and goof-proof duo. You just can’t beat the alchemy between the radiant Poppy, Eschscholzia californica ‘Apricot Chiffon.’ and the luminous, almost turquoise Penstemon heterophyllus ‘Blue Springs’
