When it comes to gardening you want to make sure that the space not only suits your every lifestyle but also that of others.  By others I mean the local wildlife who are going to come into your garden. Those birds, butterflies and various other animals are also going to need to eat somewhere.  Why not make your garden a place they can come and feast and have a good time.  That is where these plants come into play.  3 California native plants that are great for attracting the beneficial wildlife into your garden.  Totally drought tolerant and o so pretty.   Plant one of these and you won't regret it.  

These plants are:

  • Galvezia juncea 'Gran Canon' - Baja Bush Snapdragon
  • Penstemon heterophyllus 'Margarita' - Foothill Penstemon 
  • Tecoma hybrid 'Crimson Fire' - Crimson Fire Tecoma 

This continues a series of 10 videos about California native plants.  Each video will feature a situation that is commonly dealt with in residential landscapes.
