The first is Tree of Life Nursery located in San Juan Capistrano that exclusively propagates and sells California native plants. Patty the retail manager gives a tour of the nursery.
The second is Village Nurseries (various locations) that has the largest selection of California friendly plants and a great selection of pottery. One of the managers Mike gives a tour of the Huntington Beach location.
Bare in mind that these are not the only nurseries in Orange County, however from my own personal experience Tree of Life has the largest selection of California native plants and Village Nurseries with it's many locations has the largest selection of California friendly plants.
