10 drought-tolerant gardens were highlighted throughout Sherman Oaks on this 3 hour, self-guided garden tour sponsored by the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council. 

Residents and designers were on-hand at each stop to answer questions about the design and maintenance of these gardens for those who might want to try it themselves. A variety of garden types was shown including low maintenance gardens and a complete bio-sustainable garden including koi fish aquaponics systems, chickens and a variety of food and fruit production. There was something for everyone on the tour.

We will have an expanded selection this year – with a focus on species that can survive in our hot and dry climate – there is a plant that can fill your garden’s needs. Many native plants can survive quite well with natural rainfall once they get established. Items for sale include perennial wildflowers, irises, mints, sages, berries, hummingbird and butterfly plants, shrubs, perennials, and trees. A diverse selection of wildflower seeds will be available for purchase. Also for sale are new and used natural history and native gardening books, activity books for children, field guides, and posters. Refreshments and lunch will be available for purchase.

During the sale, experienced CNPSers can assist you in selecting plants that are suitable for your garden! Proceeds from the plant sale help support the activities of the Los Angeles / Santa Monica Mountains Chapter of the California Native Plant Society.
