5 drought tolerant gardens that thrive, rain or shine
Location: La Cañada Public Library, 4545 Oakwood Avenue, La Cañada (Map)
Open: Visible 24×7
FormLA Landscaping created the Gardens of the World in partnership with La Cañada Valley Beautiful, a non-profit dedicated to beautifying La Canada/Flintridge. The demonstration gardens at La Cañada Public Library highlight planting options from the five California climate compatible regions of the world: California, of course, Australia, Chile, the Mediterranean basin, and South Africa.
The gardens, installed in 2008, have been recognized for their beauty, water savings, and contributions to community education. They will be featured on an International Greenbuild Tour in October 2016.
The gardens are always open, and FormLA Landscaping’s designs for each garden are available in the library. The plant palettes for each of the gardens are available via FormLA Landscaping’s Pinterest page.
