Zone 9 Planting Schedule - MINE! Southern California. I like how it shows when to plant and when to expect to harvest. Also, I like the summer break, since I have stuff growing this summer, and it's impossible to keep it green!
These are four of my favorite California native plants. They're drought tolerant and will grow well in the increasingly warm and dry Southern California garden. For more info: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/gardening-by-region/southern-california/
