We feel that call for raw, natural, rugged beauty. Late winter and early spring are crowd pleasing times for Southern California's rolling hillsides and lush valleys. The Cajon Pass preplanned garden offers expanses of wild California lilacs that cascade and cluster like misty little clouds this special time of year. The rest of the year they offer a deep glossy green foliage best served by little to no additional water [after their first year of getting established]. Top it off with some summer pops of pink sage, hot yellow and the incredible giant wild Matilija poppy and you have a true recipe for lovable landscaping. Lots of sun & improving your soil's DRAINAGE are important for this one.
