As you will see, contrary to popular, yet uninformed belief, the natives of our state/region are not brown sticks or just spiny cacti. We live in a specific climate that is not a desert. We live in the mediterranean. The plants that grow here as natives are unforgettable, gorgeous, and very resilient. As of now, we are in a drought.  But the plants can shut down their structure and survive until the rains come.  Click on the images above to take a look at a sampling of the beauty and variety of california natives.

Baccharis pilularis consanguinea

Coyotebrush is a fundamental native shrub. After a place has burned, or been grazed or cleared, the first shrub to come back is coyotebrush. Shown above is a female in flower, soon the shrub will look like it has been sprayed with that flocking stuff used at Xmas..these are the seeds..they fly everywhere. This plant brings tons of pollinators and predatory insects (parasitoid wasps!) Comes in a low ground cover variety also.
