Tour 50 beautiful local native gardens

It's that time of year again.  The Theodore Payne hosts their really cool annual Native Plant Garden tour in just two weeks.

The Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers and Native Plants is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the understanding and preservation of California native flora. The foundation's Native Plant Garden tour is a two-day, self-guided journey through 50 of the most beautiful and inspiring native landscapes in the Los Angeles area.

On the tour, you’ll discover the beauty and many benefits of the California native plants. You’ll learn from experienced native-plant gardeners and volunteer docents how they have reduced water use, eliminated harmful pesticides and fertilizers, and attracted songbirds, hummingbirds and butterflies to their yards.
