Our Escondido location is now permanently closed. We appreciate all the support and kind words from everyone that came out during the final weeks. Thanks for supporting us for 16 years. Our California native plants are still available online. Keep planting California natives!

Our nursery has a friendly staff and native plants for the  butterflies and birds. The plants have signs. Come explore a native plant nursery for Southern California. - grid24_12

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.
