California Native Allstars – Cupertino

The horticultural staff of the UC Davis Arboretum has identified 100 tough, reliable plants that have been tested in the Arboretum, are easy to grow, don’t need a lot of water, have few problems with pests or diseases, and have outstanding qualities in the garden. Many of them are California Native plants that support Native birds and insects. Our speaker will discuss the attributes of these “All-Star” Native plants and describe their care and growing conditions.

Presented by UC Master Gardeners of Santa Clara County and California Native Plant Society.
