Plants in the Garden

g.ceanothus-compressedThe following are pictures of some of the plants in our garden of California Native Plants. All the plants were selected for their flower colors, size of adult plant, leaf color and texture. Designed to attract butterflies and birds, the garden provides a rich physical and visual texture from soft, round furry leaves to long narrow leaves, light green to dark grey leaf colors. Subtle and brightly colored flowers dot the garden seasonally.

Come by and enjoy the garden sometime or spend a few minutes before or after Services to savor the color and smells of the garden.
