Native seaside daisies carpet the foreground of this free-flowing, natural garden.
Boring blobs of green have been replaced by a vibrant tapestry of natives and other Mediterranean plants bearing foliage in grays, greens, silvers and reds.
A new, dry-stacked wall of native boulders winds its way past manzanita, monkeyflower, California sword fern and other native plants, while silvery sage offers vivid contrast to the weathered fence in the background.
Vibrant purple Cedros Island verbena, pink-blooming buckwheat and long-blooming lavender seaside daisy provide proof that you don't have to sacrifice prolific flowering in order to have a water-conserving garden.
Margarita BOP penstemon is pure delight.
