|Our nursery at the beginning of March. So many shades of green!|
|Phacelia californica (California phacelia) plugs available now. This drought tolerant perennial forb is great for attracting pollinators! It has scorpioid cymes of light purple flowers that bloom in spring.|

Clarkia unguiculata (elegant clarkia) is an endemic annual forb with bright pink showy flowers.
Many native bees and honeybees forage on this species' flowers.

|Euthamia occidentalis (goldenrod) is a long lived perennial species that flowers in late summer. This species provides nectar and pollen for native bees and wasps. Its rhizomes provide excellent bank stabilization and weed control.|

|Monardella villosa (coyotemint) is a perennial forb that has showy|
lavender flowers and attracts many pollinators. This species is very drought tolerant.

|Carex pansa (Pacific dune sedge) is great for lawn replacements. We are going to install a demo lawn in the Hedgerow Farms yard this month! C. pansa lawns require very little water to remain green all summer (2-3 deep waterings) and can be mowed or left to grow naturally.|

|Grindelia camporum plug plant posing on a branch of the willow tree in our nursery!|
|Grindelia camporum (gum plant) is an endemic perennial forb that |
provides summer habitat for insects including pollinators. (This picture was taken in summer.)
Aster chilensis (California aster) blooms in midsummer.
|Lupinus formosus is a perennial lupine species. This lupine blooms all summer long. |
Our seed is harvested by hand as it ripens. The flowers continually attract bees.

|Leymus triticoides (creeping wildrye) is a native rhizomatous grass. This species grows well in riparian areas and in canal and moist ditch plantings. It is slow to germinate but is very competitive once established.|
