Native Plant Sale @ Los Angeles | California | United States

The Palos Verdes Land Conservancy harvests seeds that have grown for thousands of years right here on the Peninsula, and then raises them in the Conservancy’s nursery. Come be inspired by colorful, drought tolerant native plants that make fertilizers and insecticides virtually unnecessary, and require little or no water. Naturalists are on hand to give advice about the one gallon size pots ($8) and smaller sized pots ($5). Many of these species will attract butterflies and other pollinators to your yard.
