All we grow are native plants.

The Escondido nursery grows primarily for the San Diego, Riverside, Orange, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles counties. We have some desert native plants, mountain plants and a lot of chaparral and coastal sage scrub plants. Which means, we have Manzanita, Ceanothus, Salvia, Buckwheat, California Fuchsia and many other native plants.

Our retail section has tables of native plants labeled for your browsing pleasure. Valerie has set areas of the nursery up so you can cruise and browse. We provide wi-fi so you can look up each plant with your tablet or just enjoy the plants at table level.

Here is a little rock garden at the Escondido Native plant nursery. The soil there was an old trucking yard. Soil is so compacted you can't dig it. We used a jack hammer to dig the fence posts. California native plants like the Penstemon heterophyllus, Dudleya cymosa, Mock Heather, and Sulfur Buckwheat seem to do fine.
