Join Cassy Aoyagi as she answers the most frequently asked questions of those using the La Canada Gardens of the World designs to inform their own gardening. Among other topics, Cassy will address:

  • Which foliage companions will keep a drought tolerant garden looking lush year round?
  • What plants perform best in the foothills?
  • What drought tolerant plants will best complement the architecture of my home or business?

The event will include a full tour of the five gardens along with a brief presentation by Cassy.

About the Gardens of the World

The Gardens of the World demonstration garden at the La Canada Public Library is a La Canada Valley Beautiful public space beautification project.  The demonstration garden contains five distinctive gardens exhibiting the charms of foliage from the five Los Angeles-climate compatible regions of the world (Australia, California, Chile, the Mediterranean basin and South Africa).

Each garden was lovingly designed and installed by FormLA Landscaping, and they are maintained by community volunteers led and trained by FormLA team members.  Garden designs are available within the library for anyone hoping to recreate their aesthetic, and the community maintenance days are a great way for community members to learn drought tolerant garden maintenance.
