This isn’t a garden tour for pansies — it’s strictly native.
The Theodore Payne Foundation’s 50-year anniversary garden tours today and Sunday include 50 gardens in Los Angeles County to commemorate the organization’s dedication to native California plants and Theodore Payne’s legacy.
Payne dedicated his life to preserving wildflowers such as golden poppies and yellow tidy tips in his own nursery and seed business. He helped to create the native plant garden at Descanso Gardens and in other gardens throughout Southern California. The foundation promotes and restores California’s landscape through education about native plants and flowers.
