Invasive Non-Native Grass-this will eventually choke out the flowering plant in the foreground.
Native Bunch Grasses are considered one of the most endangered ecosystems in California. Estimated that less than 1% remain. Bunch grasses do not spread like non-natives. They grow in bunches and provide beautiful landscape enhancements next to flowering plants. Non-native grasses require lots of water, fertilization and spread to choke out other plants.

Meadow Penstemon. A delicate pretty plant that is hardy and can grow in sun or shade….plus dry condtions. Seems to enjoy “companions” to grow next to.
Mountain Pride Penstemon is one of my favorites (of many) … This plant always brought a smile to my face while climbing or hiking by it. It seems to thrive and seek out cracks and crevices……I’ve successfully grown this from cuttings.

Showy Penstemon is a great native garden addition. Brilliant blue flowers in late spring/early summer. Native perennial to Mt Shasta and areas in California. Beneficial to a variety of pollinators. Loves it dry and sunny. I plan on growing many of these:)!
Mt Shasta Lily
This gorgeous Mt Shasta native puts out a fragrant and wonderful bloom. We can only hope the blooms happen before they are eaten by the local deer. Funny how the simple pleasures of a blooming flower put a smile on our faces!
This is the next stage of the Shasta Lily’s growth. Shasta Lily’s get their nourishment from a bulb. It takes many years for the bulb to develop from seed. Then the stalk forms and produces fragrant flower buds. Stalks come in many sizes. This one is amazing-40 buds!
