Native and Drought Resistant plants

I search out native and drought tolerant plants for Southern California gardeners. I look for cold hardy and drought tolerant natives that can withstand our local strong Santa Ana winds and arid conditions. If I don't carry a plant that you want to try, I will try to find it. Many local native species are planted in my back-country nursery borders and I have them for sale, too.


A lovely spot I designed.

One of my designs that is compatible for dry landscapes. I make plant recommendations and placement suggestions to homeowners in the mountain areas of San Diego county. You tell me the look you are trying to create and I will set up a selection at the nursery for you to preview.
