Local nurseries stock seasonal selections of Mediterranean and California native plants. The nurseries below now have “Bay-Friendly” plant signs to highlight plants that are hardy, drought tolerant and thrive in the Bay Area’s unique climate. Nursery staff can assist in making sure your Bay-Friendly plant selections match the needs of your home landscape. Stock your home library with a copy of the award winning EBMUD, Plants and Landscapes for Summer-Dry Climates, also available at these nurseries.
Look for this sign at participating
nurseries and garden centers.
Other Bay-Friendly Plant Sources
The Bay Area, and beyond, is also home to many nurseries featuring California natives. Check these sources for extensive offerings of native plants. (These nurseries are not yet Bay-Friendly Partners.)
