Great place to check out the native plants, but might be hot for the middle of the day. Bring water! But beautiful when in full bloom.

This is probably the most private place to buy plants! They are only open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday; however, you can find some great plants.!

A bit gone to seed but that's what nature looks like, NATIVE California flora is always welcome in SoCal. Nice to walk the trails and look around, a nice quiet sanctuary away from suburban sprawl Interesting programing.

The 85 acres are full of native Californian plants. The paved paths and optional gravel trails take you through many types of plants from cactus to pines. The specimens are well marked. There are benches and maps throughout the property. Very unusual special display of...More
