Designed to contribute to the re-wilding of LA. The LA River garden’s return to nature invites in wild rose, indigenous iris, blue-eyed grass and the flu-fighting force that is Wild Blue Elderberry. Designed for partial shade locations this California native garden likes a little more water and/or shade to mimic the seasonal flooding and stream-side canopy of our natural river beds.
