See two delightful FormLA Gardens on the 2020 Native Plant Garden Tour’s Saturday schedule.

The Century City garden, new to the tour, is designed to play. Its rough house ready IdealMow lawns of Carex pansa invite a tackle or two. If football on the lawn or basketball on the expansive patio aren’t of interest, maybe a game of hide-and-go-seek in the natives along the gravel footpath will do? For those exploring “outside in” landscape design and defensible space, this garden perfectly illustrates the strategies.

In Santa Monica, visit the petite paradise created for the Santa Monica Conservancy‘s Preservation Resource Center. The garden’s coastal plant palette, designed to absorb and clean rainfall and runoff in its last mile to the beach, cools the air and adds a vibrant pop of color surrounding the Center. If you are looking for foliage that thrives in sandy soils and salt air, this is a great stop.

The Native Plant Garden Tour funds Theodore Payne Foundation‘s native nursery and seed library, both key to LA’s long term resilience, as well as its education programs.
