Fall is the perfect time for planting most California natives. This week we put in the second phase planting at our largest demonstration garden to date. A beautiful perennial meadow of that will be a buzzing lively habitat garden in a few months. Even as I was watering the plants in a few lovely butterflies and bees showed up to see what was new.
The plants are beautiful and come from California Flora Nursery in Fulton, California.
Sporobolis airoides – Alkaki Sacation Grass 2-3′ wide big wonderful seed heads
Festuca californica – California Fescue 2-3′ Wide beautiful perennial meadow grass
Monardella villosa – Coyote Mint tucked between the grasses this is a super habitat plant
Rhamnus californica ‘Mound San Bruno’ – our favorite cultivar of Coffeeberry with beautiful dark green leaves and a tidy form growing to about 4′ tall and wide
Myrica californica – Wax Myrtle a great light green large shrub to about 9′
Ceanothus ‘Blue Jeans’ – California Lilac the name says it all for this sometimes short lived but fast growing and very floriferous evergreen shrub
