A guide to the plant communities of California.

Desert, Seaside, Grassland and Marsh Communities of California

Use rock mulch or a boulder for your mulch. In places like Malibu there are desert plants mixed with coastal bluff plants. Bladderpod at the seashore, weird.

Woodlands and Scrublands of California

Boulders near each plant and mulch between plants is best, but just mulch is ok.

Chaparral is represented in most of the populated coastal communities.

Coniferous Forests of California

1-3" redwood, cedar or pine needle mulch is required by these plants!

California forests are mostly at higher elevations or in Northern California.
California native plants have many diverse communities to live in.
