Our climate zone is called Mediterranean, but maybe we should start referring to our weather as uniquely “Californian.” We get our rain in winter and spring. But in between what we call “rain events,” we can have some of the most beautiful days imaginable. It is not uncommon to appreciate a perfect 78 degree beach day, only to be immediately followed by cold blustery winds, heavy rain, and snow levels below 3000 feet. Three or four days like that and when it clears, we’re back to the beach! No where on earth is quite like this.
Every month we invite you to learn with us and honored guests for Tree of Life Workshops. Topics range from landscape design to natural history of California.
Kevin Alison details California desert plants and how they are used in the garden. Kevin covers the evolution of desert habitats and common adaptations of desert plants that allow them to survive and thrive in hot, dry climates. Kevin also highlights desert species that can be planted throughout the summer and add summer color to your garden!
