As I design I like to plant for each season. Pick plants that bloom in different seasons so there is color in each season. Tree of life has so generously categorized some native plants by the month in which they bloom thus easily telling what plant blooms when and allowing you to design for each season. For example if you are planting for the holidays then this is a small list of what to plant for December bloom.

December Plants:
  • Arctostaphylos groundcovers (4 wks) - above picture is Emerald Carpet Manzanita
  • Cneoridium dumosum (6 wks)
  • Heteromeles arbutifolia berries (2 mos)
If you would like to see the rest of the months and get a glimpse into what to plant to have color in a given month then click below.
