California Native Plants

spacer
trans Foothill Penstemon


        Most plants native to California and the western states are uniquely suited to our wet winters and dry summers, some requir
e no summer water at all. This makes them ideal choices to conserve water and enjoy beautiful plants in your own backyard. They provide pollinators and other wildlife with food, nesting material and breeding sites.
