In any landscape design I try to make sure that there are various colors worked into the scheme.  Not just with flower colors but also with leaf colors and textures.  In some cases I have clients that like/dislike certain colors.  The ultimate goal is to create a landscape that creates interest within the garden.  At every season and in any light condition you want to have textures and colors and spark various moods and feelings.  This makes the garden fun and interesting to be in.  This video is about 3 California native plants that are great to add color and texture in your garden.

These plants are:

  • Arctostaphylo 'Byrd Hill' - Manzanita 
  • Eriophyllum nevenii - Catalina Silverlace
  • Salviia greggii - Autumn Sage

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