The gardens on this tour contain at least 50% native plants. Each garden is a labor of love, a place created in harmony with Southern California’s climate, soil, natural vegetation, and native wildlife. Explore this website for plant lists and photos of each garden, as well as more information about the Tour and its sponsors.
The gardens are divided into two groups: one open Saturday and the other open Sunday. At each location, the native plants are labelled, and you’ll meet garden owners, designers, and docents who can tell you about the site’s unique challenges and characteristics.
We are grateful for the community of people that make this event possible. A very special thank you to the garden hosts for opening their wonderful gardens to the public, and to our volunteer docents for sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm with visitors. We are immensely grateful for the support of our here.
