What We Grow

Our favorite mediterranean climate plants!

This database is intended to act as a starting point for planning a minimal-water needs landscape. Most of the plants in this list are drought tolerant and all are attractive. Descriptions contain information on plant origins, growth and habit, cultivation, suggested uses, ethnobotanical interest and more. Descriptions are based on reliable resources available and our observations in the garden. Conflicting information from equally reliable resources is welcome.
