Waterwise Community Center Online Workshop: Favorite Plants for Southern California Gardens

Date: Saturday 26 March 2022

Saturday 26th March 2022 from 4pm until 7pm GMT.

Wondering what to plant? We will explore our top recommended plants for gardens and landscapes in the southern California. These plants have it all! Beauty, color, habitat for birds or pollinators, and only need to be watered once or twice a month, even in the Summer!

Note: We are located in the Inland Empire area. The plants we will focus on will generally thrive in both inland and coastal SoCal landscapes. Some of them will grow well in the desert. Many will not tolerate the hard frosts of our local mountain elevations.

This class will be structured on providing great plant options for the different parts of a landscape people often need to fill. We will provide lists, detailed discussion, and tips about favorite plants for:

-Providing shade

-Full blasting sun, including super-hot areas, like along driveways and against walls

-Along walkways or paths

-Parking strips or parkways

-North sides of buildings that are shady most of the year, but then are in full sun mid-summer

-Shade, including under existing large trees

-“Transition zones” between lawns and low-water planted areas

-In and near dry stream beds and other water infiltration features

-Under and around fruit trees

-And more!

Note: While we focus the plant selections for Southern California, most of the plants presented grow well throughout the wider Mediterranean climate-type areas of greater California.  This workshop will be hosted using free Zoom webinar software. Login information and instructions will be sent to you with your registration confirmation email.  For all the details and to book your place, please click here.
